TUBAS (Ma’an) – More than 70 hay trucks blocked a main road in Tubas in the northern West Bank protesting fines they receive from custom agents when they bring lauds of hay from Israel to the West Bank.

One of the drivers, Marwan Ibrahim, told Ma’an that more than 70 drivers blocked the main road and started an open strike.

The strike, he said, includes abstention from bringing cargos of hay from Israel because custom agents who patrol the road keep giving drivers fines up to 1,500 shekels. He highlighted that custom agents demand that drivers bring a clearing tax receipt . Drivers say they should bring only invoices.

“A driver profits only 200 shekels out of each load, and in return custom agents give them a fine of 1,500 shekels,” added Ibrahim. He said that drivers try their best to support Palestinian farmers.
