Workers on strike protesting humiliation at checkpoint

Dec. 19, 2010 1:35 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 20, 2010 11:20 A.M.)
TULKAREM (Ma’an) -- Palestinian workers from the Tulkarem district in the northern West Bank, who work in Israel and Israeli settlements, went on strike Sunday protesting ill treatment by security guards who man a local checkpoint.

Head of the taxi drivers union in Tulkarem Muhammad Yasin told Ma’an that about 2,000 workers were on strike. He alleged that employees of the Israeli company which runs the the At-Tayba (Ephraim) checkpoint deliberately humiliate workers as they cross.

Yasin added that even the families of Palestinian prisoners face the same humiliation when they cross the checkpoint to visit their children in Israel’s custody. He did not elaborate.
