'Help Gaza' Included On Iran's Cell Phone Bills

Over the past few months there have been reports about Iranians in state jobs being asked to give a portion of their salaries to help Gaza.

Now an Iranian blogger has posted a photo of his cell phone bill, where "Help Gaza" is seen under other items such as international roaming, Internet, and voicemail.

The picture the blogger posted doesn't show the amount of the contribution and it's not clear whether it's voluntary or obligatory.
