Palestinians wait in line inside a bank in Gaza City

Palestinians wait in line inside a bank in Gaza City July 4, 2007. Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh called on Tuesday for public protests against Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' emergency government over its refusal to pay salaries to workers hired by Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Abbas' emergency government, headed by Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, plans to pay all Palestinian Authority workers -- excluding up to 23,000 who report to Hamas -- their first full wages in 17 months starting on Wednesday.
