NAZARETH, (PIC)– The high follow-up Committee for Arab citizens called for a general strike on Sunday in all parts of the 1948 occupied lands in support of the Negev region and its people.
The committee said it would organize many events in protest of the Israeli ethnic-cleansing plan to appropriate about 800 dunums of Palestinian land from their rightful owners that would led to the destruction of Negev villages and the displacement of about 30, 000 Palestinians from their homes and communities.
The committee also called for participating actively in the protest to be held Sunday morning outside the headquarters of the Israeli government in occupied Jerusalem, and noted it would provide dozens of buses to transport thousands of protesters to this place.
“Our people in the Negev, their children, women and elders are suffering under the yoke of the largest eliminatory scheme having targeted the Arabs since the 1948 nakba; it is a plot threatening their existence,” the committee stated in a press release.
