BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Kuwait is preparing to hire between 200 and 400 Palestinian teachers in its schools for the 2017-2018 school year, and boost the Palestinian Authority's budget with $200 million in support.

Palestinian ambassador to Kuwait Rami Tahbub told Ma'an that Kuwaiti expert panels will visit the occupied Palestinian territory to interview job candidates, and will accept an initial batch of 200 to 400 teachers, with the potential to increase in the coming years.

He added efforts were underway to develop a program to send Palestinians of other professions to work in Kuwait.

He highlighted that in addition to the $200 million Kuwait would contribute to the PA in the future, Kuwait already gives $14 million a month directly towards the PA's budget, in addition to its support of operational projects in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip.
