Well-informed educational sources told a local Arabic daily that approximately 618 teachers have been contracted, including 129 from Jordan and 489 from Palestine.

The sources added the ministry has addressed the Civil Service Commission and matters are still pending, noting that once the CSC gives approval, visas will be sent to teachers and air tickets will be booked.
