Scores of Palestinians on Tuesday staged a sit-in in Abu Dis town east of Occupied Jerusalem. The event aimed at demanding the Palestinian Authority (PA) to lift the sanctions imposed on the besieged Gaza Strip since last April.

Earlier on Tuesday, Palestinian crowds in Ramallah went to the streets and participated in a massive sit-in for the same demand. They asked the PA to urgently implement the resolutions of the Palestinian National Council especially the decisions on civil employees’ salaries
