The Hamas Movement has paid tribute to the Palestinian citizens for their massive participation in the march staged on Friday in the Gaza Strip to protest the electricity crisis.
In a press release, Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said that the citizens in Gaza have the right to peacefully express their opinion and demand their rights, without causing riots and chaos.
Barhoum also said that the Palestinian police in Gaza have a duty to protect the participants in popular marches and prevent anyone from exploiting them to create chaos.
The spokesman urged the citizens in Gaza from all spectra to shoulder their responsibilities and join forces to put an end to the electricity crisis.
Thousands of Palestinians in Jabalia refugee camp, north of Gaza, took to the streets on Friday protesting the power crisis in the Strip.
The protesters chanted angry slogans and carried banners blaming Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas and premier Rami al-Hamdallah for the exacerbation of the power crisis.
