Crowds Protest in Ramallah as Secretary of State Blinken Meets with PA President Abbas

Tensions are high in the West Bank, and demonstrators called on the Palestinian Authority to cut off contact with the US, saying that rather than demanding a cease-fire, the US has been enabling Israel to continue its offensive in Gaza

Dozens of angry protesters demonstrated against the arrival of US Secretary of State Antony Blinken in Ramallah on Wednesday by burning posters of him and of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Blinken was in Ramallah to meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas after meeting with Netanyahu and other officials in Israel the previous day.
