Palestinians between Jordan River and Mediterranean Sea call for general strike

Palestinians in Israel, occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank have called for a general strike on Tuesday to show unity amid ongoing Israeli bombardment on the Gaza Strip.

The Arab Follow-up Committee, which coordinates between political parties inside Israel, called on Sunday for Palestinian citizens of Israel - who at almost 1.6 million make up 20 percent of the country - to mobilise for a general strike. It is named the Karameh (Dignity) Strike.

Palestinian political factions, the Palestinian Authority (PA) and civil organisations have also responded to the call, announcing a general strike in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

The strike is the latest example of Palestinian unity across historic Palestine and beyond seen in the past week since Israeli crackdowns in Jerusalem spilled into a conflict in Gaza.
