Palestinian youth groups in the West Bank are planning a series of street demonstrations over the next few days in protest against price increases of basic goods and fuel.

Some of the groups are demanding the resignation of Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, whose government they hold responsible for the price hikes.

On Monday, dozens of cab drivers staged a protest in the center of Ramallah, calling on the PA government to intervene to stop the increase in the price of fuel.

The drivers were joined by scores of residents who called for launching protests in other West Bank cities.
