In Photos: Palestinians observe general strike in protest of Pence visit to Israel

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Palestinians observed a general strike on Tuesday, shuttering businesses and institutions en masse in protest of US Vice President Mike Pence’s ongoing visit to Israel.

Palestinian national factions called for a general strike “in rejection of the US stances against the rights of the Palestinian people.”

All shops, stores, institutions and schools closed their gates on Tuesday in commitment to the strike.

Meanwhile, groups of Palestinian youth across the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah closed off several roads with rocks and burning tires in order to force Palestinians using the roads to travel to work to commit to the strike.
