Palestinian extremists stage stormy protest in Ramallah

Shouting “No more demonstrations, only guns and rockets against Israel!” thousands rallied in Ramallah Monday, mostly from Hamas and other extremist groups. They were protesting against the Palestinian Authority’s decision to surrender to Israel the wanted terrorist Basal al-Ar’aj from El-Bireh. When Israeli forces came to arrest him last week, he began shooting and was killed in the firefight. Palestinian security forces have been reinforced in Ramallah to keep the peace when President’ Trump’s adviser Jason Greenblatt arrives Tuesday on a mission to restart peace negotiations.
