RAMALLAH, Dec 7 (KUNA) -- A general strike has been staged in most occupied Palestinian territories, including West Bank, Gaza and Jerusalem, in protest against US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Schools, universities and shops have shut down following a call for a strike, as any businesses also observed the strike.
Palestinian nationalist and Islamist forces called for the strike following Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to move US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
The Palestinian Ministry of Education declared a general strike on Thursday at all Universities and schools in occupied Palestinian areas to protest the US move.
Earlier on Wednesday, US President Donald Trump recognized in a much-anticipated announcement Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
Trump also announced that he was directing the State Department to begin preparations to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
The Palestinian forces called for three days of rage to protest the US move on Jerusalem, which Israel occupied in the June 1967 war.
The US president's decision has sparked wide-scale condemnation and rejection at Arab, Islamic and international levels. (end) wab.nq.mt
