Thousands march against Abbas in Gaza

Posted:

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (WKOW) -- Thousands of Palestinians in Hamas-ruled Gaza are marching against Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

Al-Jazeera reports sparked the protest when it leaked documents from a decade of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. Al-Jazeera says the documents show Abbas made concessions on Jerusalem and the fate of Palestinian refugees, and demonstrators are calling Abbas a traitor.

The Islamic militant Hamas has accused Abbas of selling out Palestinian rights.

Palestinians in one Gaza town hoisted effigies of Abbas and other Palestinian negotiators with Israeli flags, chanting, "Go home, traitors." Demonstrators in another Gaza town held up photos of Abbas with his face crossed out.
