Palestinians marched through the Gaza Strip on Tuesday to protest against a new death penalty bill which critics say ‘targets Palestinians’.
Outraged by the announcement, protesters burnt images of both Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump.
Hamas leader Ismail Radwan strongly criticised the new death penalty bill. “This law will open the doors of hell and... Еще the resistance will escalate until the fall of unjust and racist decisions against our people,» he said.
The Israeli government has proposed making it easier it to pass the death sentence for terrorist activity.
Rights groups in Palestine and a number of international organisations fear the extension of capital punishment will unfairly target Palestinians.
