Palestinian protesters burn US flag, images of Trump ahead of visit

Palestinians in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, protesting in solidarity with hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, burned images of visiting President Trump.

Some protesters carried signs denouncing the US president for “selling off the rights of Palestinians,” while others burned American flags and images of Trump.

Palestinians were protesting in solidarity with the more than 1,000 Palestinian security prisoners refusing food in Israeli prisons, who have reached the 36th day of their hunger strike.

Today, Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem observed a general work strike in solidarity with the security prisoners.

Earlier, the Palestinian prisoners’ affairs committee called for a “day of rage” tomorrow, when Trump visits the West Bank town Bethlehem, for “the voice of the prisoners to be heard by the president.”
