Public transport workers hold wild-cat strikes in West Bank
Transportation workers in the West Bank held a one day strike yesterday
Drivers of public transportation sector in the West Bank went on a one-day strike Wednesday to protest government failure to meet their demands paralyzing as a result life across the West Bank.
The drivers are demanding reduction in fuel prices in light of the current bad economic situation.
They said they will escalate their strike if the government does not respond to their demands.
