The committee urged the public not to buy Israeli products and called on shop owners not sell Israeli goods and to remove anything Israeli they have from the shelves.

“The least the public can do to support the strike is to boycott (Israeli) products,” said the committee in a statement. “This battle has to end in victory for our heroes in the occupation prisons.”
