BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Palestinian religious and national institutions jointly announced a general strike on Monday in protest against the Israeli offensive on Gaza, which has left 425 Palestinians dead in the last 13 days.

The general director of the Palestinian initiative Mustafa Barghouthi told Ma'an on Sunday that Islamic and nationalist leaders in the West Bank as well as Palestinian leaders inside Israel had decided to go on strike on Monday in solidarity with Gaza.

The head of the public workers union Bassam Zakarneh said a strike will be observed on Monday in all institutions and ministries in condemnation of the "massacres" suffered by the people in Gaza.
