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.

If the Palestinians were all in Jordan/Palestine--which is where they SHOULD be--we wouldn't even be involved in their economic affairs. They would be so much happier and have real hope for a better future in their own nation on their own land. They're planning to strike even though the PA already subsidizes fuel. Yes, we are to blame for much of the Palestinians' economic barriers but guess what ??? ... Even if we'd lift every damn economic burden we impose on them, they'd STILL be in hell.
