Security forces prevent protests from taking place in Gaza City

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Security forces in the Gaza Strip prevented Palestinians of the popular campaign against the Israeli occupation and siege from organizing an event entitled “Enough Silence” in the Unknown Soldier Square in Gaza City on Thursday.

The campaign condemned the move in a statement, saying the event aimed “to deliver the voices of the Israeli occupation’s victims to the world and defend Palestinians’ rights,” highlighting that the campaign had received permission from authorities in Gaza one week ago to hold the event.

After security forces prevented the event from taking place, members of the committee headed to another event in al-Saraya square that was being held in solidarity with hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners, only to find that the prisoners solidarity event had been shut down as well by security forces.

The reasons for preventing both events remained unknown.
