Public transport strike announced for Monday

Sept. 9, 2012 2:15 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 10, 2012 1:46 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- All public transport in the West Bank will halt on Monday in the latest action against rising fuel prices, the union said Sunday.

The Public Transport Union met in Ramallah with representatives across the West Bank and authorized the full strike, it said.

Muhammad Yassin, the Tulkarem representative of the union, said the strike would be followed by further action in the coming days as transport workers protest spiraling prices.

While the Palestinian Authority government continues to subsidize fuel, a 5 percent hike in the price in recent weeks has angered transport workers.

Bus, taxi and lorry drivers have protested and held strikes across the West Bank this week in response to the price increase.
