BBC quotes PA statistic without attribution

In the BBC News article World Bank aid for Palestinians, one can read the following.
As many as one in four Palestinians depend on wages from the Palestinian Authority.
Where did the BBC obtain that figure? From an employee of the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics, who depends on wages from the Palestinian Authority; the government itself isn’t the most unbiased source on the issue of aid to Palestinians, is it?
