Palestinians rally in West Bank against Israel's war in Gaza

Published July 9th, 2014 - 07:39 GMT

Palestinians have clashed with Israeli forces during a demonstration in the West Bank in solidarity with the people in Gaza.

The clash erupted early on Wednesday, when the Palestinians gathered near the city of Ramallah to hold a demonstration in solidarity with the Palestinians in Gaza, who are being targeted in relentless Israeli military attacks.

The Israeli soldiers fired tear gas at the protesters during the clash. The exact number of the people injured in the incident is unclear.

The Israeli regime continued pounding the besieged enclave in the early hours of Wednesday, killing six people, including Islamic Jihad member Hafez Hamad, in a strike that hit a house in Beit Hanoun.

On Tuesday, the Israeli army said that it had conducted some 50 airstrikes on the coastal strip. Several residential buildings were targeted in the raids. The deadliest strike of the day took place when a missile hit a house in the southern Gaza city of Khan Yunis, leaving eight people dead, emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said.

Palestinian resistance movements in the besieged Gaza Strip have responded to Israel’s aggression by targeting towns and cities deep inside the occupied Palestinian territories. The Israeli military said on Tuesday that 130 rockets were fired from Gaza, with 70 hitting different sites.

Tensions heightened between Palestinians and Israelis after the burning alive of Mohammed Abu Khdeir a Palestinian teen in East al-Quds (Jerusalem) last week.

Abu Khdeir’s death came after Israel buried three settlers, whose bodies were in the West Bank. Tel Aviv claims Hamas is responsible for the death of the three. However, the resistance movement rejects the allegation.
