Jerusalem Municipality

Smelly Garbage

This is how Jerusalem is looking these days. The streets are full of smelly garbage and there are places, such as the Machane Yehudah Market, where pedestrians have to climb over garbage piles. 
The reason is the latest municipality strike. Municipality employees want more money and intend to strike until the Finance Ministry is giving in. 
For the past two days, the municipality building remained closed and garbage wasn’t picked up. I have no idea if they continue the strike tomorrow.
