Massive vigils and marches were staged on Friday night in different areas of the Gaza Strip in protest at the measures that were taken recently by Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas and his government against the population in the impoverished enclave.
The protest rallies were organized by the National Anti-Siege and Reconstruction Movement Commission and the Hamas Movement, and took place in Jabalia refugee camp, al-Shuja’iyya neighborhood, Khan Younis City, the northern and central districts of Gaza, Gaza City, and Rafah.
Thousands of citizens participated in the protests, carrying placards and pictures of Abbas and premier Rami al-Hamdallah that denounced their involvement in the blockade on their own people in Gaza.
During one of those protests, senior Hamas official Isam al-Da’alis told the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) that the Palestinian citizens took to the streets in thousands to condemn Abbas for depriving them of electricity, medical care and salaries.
