Yes, but that PDF is simply page 2 of the PDF dated 2022-08-22 that we 
received in August 2022[1]. This was later superseded by the March 2023 
cabinet decision[2].

I guess that the email we received today[3] copies the August 2022 
communique merely to support the statement that Palestine's fall 
transition is the same that what was planned in August 2022.

TZDB currently predicts that Palestine's spring transition will be April 
13, 2024 at 02:00, contrary to [1] and [3] (which have the transition on 
March 30) but more consistent with [2] (which says Palestine used 
standard time during Ramadan 2023). It would be helpful if the 
Palestinian cabinet could confirm TZDB's guess soon, rather than wait 
until April next year, because if TZDB's guess is wrong it will take 
some time to propagate fixes out to cell phones and computers.
