National forces in Jerusalem declare civil disobedience against Israeli repression

JERUSALEM, Saturday, February 18, 2023 (WAFA) – The Palestinian national and Islamic forces in occupied Jerusalem declared today their intention to observe civil disobedience, starting Sunday early morning, in protest of the Israeli repression measures against Palestinians in the city and the rest of the occupied territories.

The forces said in a press statement that the civil disobedience measures include calling on Palestinian workers not to go to their workplaces in Israel, refusing to pay taxes to the Israeli authorities and the Israeli municipality of Jerusalem, closing the road leading to the Shuafat camp checkpoint, and closing the entrance to Anata town.

The civil disobedience comes in response to the daily crimes of the Israeli occupation government against our people in Jerusalem and the rest of the occupied territories, including extrajudicial killings, arrests, and home demolitions.

It also comes against the backdrop of the almost daily Israeli police and military raids on the Palestinian refugee camp of Shuafat, in occupied Jerusalem, and the adjoining town of Anata.
