Arabs Declare Strike Amid Riots After Police Kill Violent Arab Attacker
Jerusalem Post – A general strike was called for Sunday across the Arab sector, after a 22-year-old Kafr Kana man was shot and killed by police in the village Friday night.
The strike was called by the Arab Higher Monitoring Committee hours after a surveillance video of the incident emerged that appeared to contradict the police depiction of events. Police said Saturday morning a 22-year-old Kafr Kana man, Kheir a-Din Hamdan, tried to attack officers with a knife and was shot because officers feared for their lives. Police said that they fired a warning shot in the air first.
