Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Palestinians Protest Against Jewish Ultranationalist March in Gaza” – below is their description.
Hundreds of Palestinians protested on Tuesday in Gaza City against a march by Jewish ultranationalists through east Jerusalem.
Some protesters burned pictures of former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Naftali Bennett, the current Prime Minister.
Ismael Radwan, a Hamas official, said that the march is “provoking the feelings of our Palestinian people.”
He said “all options are open to respond to the crimes of the occupation.”
The Gaza protest was against a march Tuesday by hundreds of Israeli ultranationalists through east Jerusalem, raising fears of renewed violence just weeks after a war with Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip.
Palestinians in Gaza responded by launching incendiary balloons that caused at least 10 fires in southern Israel.
The march posed a test for Israel’s fragile new government as well as the tenuous truce that ended last month’s 11-day war between Israel and Hamas.
Palestinians consider the march, meant to celebrate Israel’s capture of east Jerusalem in 1967, to be a provocation.
Hamas called on Palestinians to “resist” the parade, a version of which helped ignite last month’s 11-day Gaza war.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
