Thousands of Palestinian protesters called Sunday for overthrowing the Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas during the funeral procession of youngster Dhiaa Marshoud, who was killed by the PA forces on Wednesday. Walking in Dhiaa’s funeral procession, which kicked off from the Rafidia Hospital in Nablus, thousands of Palestinians urged Abbas to step down.
The mourners further called for toppling the PA national security chief, Nidhal Dukhan.
Dhiaa was killed by the PA troops last Wednesday after he was shot, along with his three friends, while driving in eastern Nablus. Members of the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC), including Ahmad Al-Haj Ali and Jamal Al-Tiraoui, also joined the funeral procession.
Rage flared among the Palestinians as Abbas showed up in the funeral of the former Israeli President Shimon Peres while he did not show any kind of sympathy nor extended his condolences over the death of the Palestinian youth.
