The Israeli government has assigned segregate bus lines for Palestinians in the West Bank.
The decision banning Palestinian laborers from traveling on the same buses as Israeli citizens came into effect as of Monday.
Secretary General of the Palestinian Workers' Trade Union Sadir Said told Anadolu Agency that they objected to this "racist and dangerous" decision.
"This is one of the dangerous decisions taken by Israeli authorities. We fear that Israeli radicals may take advantage of this decision and target Palestinian laborers. The decision reminds us of the previous massacres Israel has conducted," Said said.
Sair also stated that the separate buses would put an extra burden on Palestinian laborers as they would have to pay 23 shekels rather than 9 shekels daily for the buses provided to them.
