Anti-PA economic protest in Hebron

Palestine Times (Hamas) has a photo essay on a protest against high prices in the PA today.

Trucks blocked the streets as hundreds came out to protest economic conditions. They say the cost of building materials and fuel is unacceptably high and are demanding that the PA do something about it.

As of this writing, there is no mention of this protest in the Fatah-linked press.

Also in Hebron, a man attempted to set himself on fire because he was having trouble making ends meet for his two wives and children.

Meanwhile, Hamas added a 25% tax for all cars imported into Gaza.
