Estimates said between 200,000 and 300,000 Palestinians in Gaza gathered in Al-Khatib Square after Hamas protesters drove those calling for unity out of the Square of the Unknown Soldier.

Witnesses said Hamas supporters numbered approximately 200, had set up a stage for speeches and carried party flags.

Organizers, calling for an end of division starting with a newly elected Palestinian National Council, the supreme body of the PLO, asked that only Palestinian and no factional flags be present at the demonstration.
