Health workers to escalate strike action

Feb. 10, 2013 9:49 A.M. (Updated: Feb. 11, 2013 5:15 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Health workers in the West Bank will escalate their strike action next week, their union said on Sunday.

Osama al-Najjar, the head of the healthcare union, said from Feb. 17, the health sector will go on full strike, with the exception of one day per week in order to fulfill their responsibilities to the population.

They will also continue the partial strike launched last week and strike this Thursday.

Al-Najjar said the government had failed to respond to their demands, which concern budget cuts affecting the health sector.
