Palestinian flags filled the streets of Ramallah on Wednesday as hundreds of protesters took to the streets in the West Bank to voice their anger over the recent Israeli attacks on the Gaza strip.

Protesters chanted for retribution for the slain, urging the Palestinian resistance forces to fire back at the Israeli army.

On Wednesday, Israel carried out a brutal attack on Gaza that left at least 7 Palestinians dead, including top Hamas military commander Ahmed al-Jaabari and a four-year old girl.

“Oh Beloved Gaabary, we want to set Tel Aviv burnt down. With our blood and souls, we sacrifice everything for you, Gaza,” chanted the fuming protesters.

According to some Palestinian activists on twitter, Palestinian Authority forces stopped protesters from marching to Beit Eli, an Israeli settlement.

Abir Kopty, one of the protesters, stated via twitter that Palestinian police has arrested three of the participants.

A number of protests are scheduled to take place in various cities in Palestine on Thursday, including Haifa and Jerusalem.

Meanwhile in Cairo, hundreds marched to the ministry of foreign affairs to demand the closure of the Israeli embassy.

Another major protest in solidarity with Gaza has reportedly taken place in Istanbul, Turkey.
