Arab Israeli group declares protest strike for Tuesday

The Arab High Follow-Up Committee declares a mass strike in Arab cities and towns around Israel on Tuesday in protest of Israeli policies, including what they deem “continued aggression against Gaza and Jerusalem.”

The committee, a political body that unites Arab Israeli policymakers across the political spectrum, says that it will coordinate “peaceful activities” with the help of local municipalities and activists.

The Follow-Up Committee also condemns Israeli policies in the flashpoint East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah, as well as mob violence against Arabs in cities and towns across the country. Israel has seen significant civil unrest in recent days, with Jewish and Arab mobs targeting the other ethnic group.
