Jerusalem24 – Today, Thursday, the city of Umm al-Fahm announced a general strike in all public and private facilities, following the death of the 17-year-old boy, Muhammad Mahmoud Kiwan, who succumbed to his critical injury after being shot at by Israeli police.
Kiwan’s family, the municipality of Umm al-Fahm, the Popular Committee and the High Follow-Up Committee for Arab Affairs held the Israeli authorities full responsibility for the assassination of the child, considering the actions of the Israeli police as part of the war crimes it has committed in Gaza, Sheikh Jarrah, the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
