Palestine: Protesters Engulfed With Tear Gas at Demonstrations Near Ramallah

Large numbers of Palestinian protesters clashed with the Israeli soldiers on Thursday at the checkpoint known as the DCO, which the Israeli army maintains at the northern end of the city of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank.

Protesters can be seen using slings to hurl rocks at Israeli forces, who in turn launched tear gas back at the protests and can be seen aiming their weapons at them.

The protests were called to decry US President Donald Trump’s proposed ‘deal of the century’ to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Similar clashes were reported in Hebron, the Arroub refugee camp and the town of Sair, north of Hebron, where soldiers also reportedly used the tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse the protesters.

On Tuesday, Trump unveiled his fabled ‘deal of the century’, a set of proposals to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, alongside Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu in Washington DC.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas rejected the plan with “a thousand no’s,” as being one-sided in favour of Israel.
