Fatah and Other Palestinian Factions Declare 'Day of Rage'

Mahmoud Abbas has not voiced opinion about continuing protests, but did urge Palestinians to turn out en masse to donate blood to help the wounded in both Gaza and the West Bank.

Following the death of two demonstrators during Thursday’s march from Ramallah to Qalandiyah, Fatah and the other Palestinian factions have declared a “day of rage in support of bleeding, besieged Gaza” and called for continuing popular protests throughout the West Bank.
