Thousands of Palestinians took the streets on Thursday in several West Bank cities protesting the continued Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip.

Demonstrations were reported in the central West Bank city of Ramallah, Hebron, and Bethlehem cities, all located in the southern part of the West Bank.

In Ramallah thousands gathered at the city center raising Palestinian flags and banners demanding the immediate halt to the Israeli attacks. Meanwhile, a similar protest took place in Hebron City that was organized by local civil society and school students.

In Bethlehem school students gathered at the Church of the Nativity then marched towards the Israeli illegal wall separating their city from nearby Jerusalem. Local youth threw stones at the military watch-tower, in protest of what's happening in Gaza. Israeli troops responded by firing tear gas at the local youth. No injuries were reported.

Local sources in Bethlehem said that Palestinian Security Forces attacked the stone-throwing youth and beat some of them up. An official source from the Palestinian Security Forces in Bethlehem told the IMEMC that the PA forces forced the youth back away from the wall for their own safety and did not attack them.
