BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:10 A.M.) – The Palestinian Authority’s (PA) security forces broke up a rally in support of Gaza, which took place in Ramallah on Wednesday.
Riot police used batons, sound grenades and tear gas to disperse the demonstrators. Injuries and arrests were reported at the scene.
The protest was held despite a temporary ban on demonstrations issued earlier on Wednesday. Organisers have promised further rallies.
Protesters have been calling on PA leader Mahmoud Abbas to drop measures against Gaza, which they believe punish its two million residents.
