Palestinians protest for Hamas-Fatah unity

Thousands of people demonstrated across the Palestinian territories on Tuesday calling for political unity between their rival governments. Hamas controls Gaza, while Fatah is in power in the West Bank. The protesters – who organised the event via Facebook – say they have been inspired by uprisings elsewhere in the Middle East. They say they want an end to the bitter political deadlock, which has divided Palestinians for more than five years.
