Palestinians are observing a general strike across the occupied West Bank and al-Quds to mourn a young Palestinian man who was killed by Israeli forces in a confrontation.
Heeding a call from nationalist factions, Palestinians observed the one-day general strike on Thursday to pay homage to Udai Tamimi, who was gunned down during a reported firefight with the Israeli forces at the entrance of the West Bank settlement of Maale Adumim in the east of the holy occupied city of al-Quds on Wednesday.
Businesses, schools and different facilities shut down their doors in different areas of the West Bank and al-Quds. The strike also included public transportation.
Tamimi, 22, was wanted by the Israeli military after killing an Israeli soldier, identified as Noa Lazar, at a checkpoint near the Shuafat Palestinian refugee camp in al-Quds on Oct. 8.
The 10-day search for Tamimi witnessed the Israeli military shutting down the entrances to the camp and laying siege that paralyzed healthcare services and schools there.
