High school students in Ashdod, Givat Shmuel, Herzliya, Emek Yisrael, and Kiryat Shmona intend to protest classes on Monday, as the National Student and Youth Council strike enters its second day.

The Council renewed its protest on Sunday with a “wandering strike,” which will see high school students from five different municipalities go on strike every day.

High school students in Ramat Gan, Rosh Haayin, Ofakim, Yokneam and Deir al-Assad were the first to strike on Sunday, shutting down schools in their municipalities.
