Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniya sweeps the floor as part of a cleaning campaign with Hamas volunteers in Gaza City Friday, Sept. 1, 2006. Municipal workers, mainly responsible for garbage collection, water treatment, and sewage processing, went on strike in Gaza City and two other southern towns three days ago. Their action is part of a broader strike threat by unions linked to the opposition Fatah Party that is widely viewed as a pressure tactic to force Hamas to give in to demands to form a national unity government.
