Jaffa woman fired over hijab returns to work

QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian woman with Israeli citizenship returned to work Tuesday as a cashier for an Israeli supermarket in Jaffa that fired her for wearing a Muslim head covering.

Ilham Karajah was reinstated to her position after a meeting between Jaffa Municipal Council member Ahmad Masharawi and the general manager of the Avi Shuq supermarket chain.

"I am glad Karajah returned to work ... Jaffa is a mixed city which is home to a large number of Arab citizens. The decision to discharge was negative and dangerous," Masharawi said, adding that the community would have organized rallies had the decision not been overturned.
