Thousands of Palestinians Protest U.S. Veto of Settlement Resolution
An estimated 3,000 Palestinians marched through downtown Ramallah, in the central West Bank, on Sunday afternoon to protest the U.S. government's veto of a United Nations Security Council Resolution condemning Israeli settlements as an 'obstacle to peace'.
The protest was led by members of the Fatah party, which is the de facto Palestinian government of the West Bank, an area which remains under complete Israeli military occupation and martial law since 1967. They marched through the streets of Ramallah and rallied in al-Manara Square in the center of the city.
