Fatah Supporters Demonstrate Against Hamas

Over ten thousand supporters of Fatah used open-air prayer time in the Gaza Strip to launch widespread protests against Hamas which rules the area. Men shouted slogans against the prime minister of Hamas as they marched down streets urging people to disobey Hamas: “Oh, Haniya, oh wretched one. Go away.” Hams forces fired in the air and at least eight people were injured or wounded, including two French journalists. On August 13th, The Executive Force of Hamas banned all unauthorized demonstrations.
