A student website in Iran reports that state employees have been asked to give a portion of their salaries to the Palestinian people.

The website of student reformists from the Amirkabir University has posted a copy of the form that has been reportedly distributed in government companies.

The website reports that employees have to state how many days of their monthly salaries they want to be sent to the people of Gaza.

According to the website, state employees have been told that they should at least give five days of their daily salary to help their Muslim brothers.

The website adds that Iran's government sends the money designated for the Palestinian people directly to Hamas.
