Massive march in Gaza against kidnapping four Palestinians in Sinai
Large numbers of Palestinians took to the streets of Gaza in the afternoon on Friday in a massive march to protest against kidnapping four Palestinians in the Egyptian Sinai Peninsula over two weeks ago.
The march, which was called for by the Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, was launched from all mosques in Gaza city after Friday prayers and headed to the Egyptian Embassy’s closed headquarters.
The massive march was led by Hamas leaders and families of the abducted Palestinians in addition to a number of Palestinian MPs along with national figures who all called on the Egyptian authorities to release the kidnapped youths.
Anonymous armed men attacked, at a late hour on Wednesday, August 19, a Palestinian vehicle carrying passengers travelling from Rafah border crossing to Cairo airport, just after a short distance from Rafah crossing, and abducted four Palestinians.
