Protests in West Bank after Gaza hospital blast - BBC News

Protests have sprung up in several major cities after the bombing of a Gaza hospital where hundreds of wounded people were being treated.

One doctor described the blast at Al-Ahli Arab Hospital on Tuesday night as “a massacre”.

It enraged Palestinians who flooded the streets of several cities in the West Bank, throwing stones and chanting against Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

Protesters were also seen in Libyan cities, outside the British and French embassies in Tehran as well as at Israeli embassies in Turkey and Jordan.

Israel says the blast was caused by a rocket misfired by Palestinian militants.

Hamas, Palestinian authorities, and other countries blame Israel for the explosion, which Hamas says killed 500 people.
