Palestinians carry coffins through Ramallah to protest Gaza offensive

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinians marched through Ramallah on Wednesday carrying 500 symbolic coffins with the names of people killed by Israeli forces in Gaza, a Ma'an reporter said.

The rally was organized by the municipalities of Ramallah, al-Bireh, and Beituniya as a protest against the Israeli offensive on Gaza.

Laila Ghannam, the governor of the Ramallah and al-Bireh district, participated in the rally, along with members of Fatah's central committee.

"Palestinians are united and cannot be divided," Ghannam said at the rally.

"The blood of children is a stigma on the forehead of the silent world that claims to respect human rights," she added.

"The blood of our people in the West Bank is mixed with the blood of Gazans. The blood is one, the decision is one, and the goal is one."

Israel's latest offensive on Gaza, dubbed "Operation Protective Edge," has left over 650 Palestinians dead, most of them civilians. Over 4,000 Palestinians have been injured.

Thirty-one Israelis, all but two of them soldiers, have also died in the fighting, in addition to a foreign civilian worker who died Wednesday after being hit by mortar fire in southern Israel.
