The Hamas-appointed attorney general in the Gaza Strip has reopened the offices of Jawaal, a subsidiary of PalTel, five days after he ordered to close them over alleged non-payment of taxes, according to Reuters. No reason was given for the decision.

Executives at PalTel rejected the attorney general's accusations, saying that all relevant taxes had been paid to the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank.

The Palestinian Authority, led by President Mahmoud Abbas, is nominally in charge of Gaza and the West Bank, Hamas has controlled Gaza since 2007 and appoints some of its own officials, including the attorney general.
