Palestinian forces break up Ramallah protest over Gaza

Palestinian forces break up Ramallah protest over GazaPalestinian security forces fired stun grenades and tear gas to disperse a rare anti-government protest in the occupied West Bank Wednesday, an AFP reporter said, as hundreds demonstrated against Palestinian punitive measures against Hamas-run Gaza. The protest in central Ramallah, the West Bank city that houses the Palestinian government, was in defiance of a temporary ban on demonstrations announced earlier Wednesday. The protesters were demanding that 83-year-old Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas drop measures against Gaza which critics say amount to collective punishment of the two million residents there.
