Palestine’s ‘Day of Anger’: From River to the Sea
By Staff, Agencies
Palestinians staged a nationwide general strike across the occupied West Bank and towns occupied in 1948 lands to protest the ongoing “Israeli” aggression on the Gaza Strip.
Shops, business centers, civil institutions, banks, and universities shut their doors across the West Bank.
The general strike was called by Palestinian parties and unions as a “day of anger” over “Israel’s” military aggression in Gaza and Al-Quds.
“The strike is an expression of anger against this barbaric aggression by the ‘Israeli’ occupation and international silence toward [‘Israeli’] aggression against our people in Al-Quds, Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood and Gaza,” Fahmi Shaheen, the coordinator of the national and Islamic forces in Al-Khalil said.
He further stated: “This strike acquires a special importance because it is joined by all the Palestinian people across historic Palestine.”
Meanwhile, shops and private institutions in Arab towns in 1948 occupied lands closed down as part of the general strike.
On Sunday, activists called on Palestinians to join the strike in protest of the ongoing “Israeli” attacks against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and West Bank.
