NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Ambulance and emergency service officers of the Palestinian Red Crescent began an open strike across the West Bank on Sunday.

Spokesperson for the Union of Red Crescent employees Mahmoud Al-Karmi told Ma'an that about 250 employees started an open strike after they submitted three demands to the association and their demands were ignored.

Head of the Palestinian federation of trade unions Shahir Saad said he had made efforts during the last few hours to try and reach agreement to avoid a strike, "but the Red Crescent administration turned down offers to reach an agreement."

The three demands proposed by the employees were that the Palestinian ministry of education recognize the certificates given to paramedics, equal payment along the line of civil servants, and salary increases and allowances to account for the hazardous nature of their work, similar to governmental employees.
