GAZA, (PIC)– More than 200 thousand Palestinians participated in the protests called for by Hamas in the “Friday to light up Gaza and expose the conspiracy”. People demonstrated all over the Gaza Strip to protest the fuel crisis.

The protests which started after the Friday prayers were led by Hamas officials, MPs and Ministers.

PIC correspondents said that people gathered for the protest of north Gaza at the Tarnes Street in Jabalya, while in Gaza people gathered outside Shawwa and Husari towers, in the central Gaza Strip at the Salah al-Deen road, in Khan Younis outside the Grand Mosque and in Rafah at al-Awawda Square.

Protestors chanted slogans condemning the conspiracy and expressing will to withstand all pressures. Speakers accused the PA of being involved along with the occupation, the US and some Arab parties in tightening the siege on the Gaza Strip and using the power crisis to turn the people of Gaza against Hamas.

In Khan Younis, Hamas organised a protest march after the Friday prayers. Thousands of residents participated in six protests which met to form one central protest outside the Grand Mosque at the centre of the city.

Participants in the protest chanted against the blockade which is causing the fuel crises and is effecting every aspect of life in the costal enclave.

Participants raised Palestinian flags as well as green flags. Other factions participated in the protest to express their anger at the conspiracies being hatched by the PA and the Egyptian Intelligence to further strangle the Gaza Strip.
