WATCH: Palestinians Suffering From Premature Enragulation
Everyone knows Friday is supposed to the Day of Rage.
So why were these palestinians getting their rage on today, Tuesday?
I guess the mere sight of US diplomats was too much.
A delegation of US diplomats had to cut short an event in the West Bank city of Bethlehem on Tuesday, an attendee said, after protesters stormed their meeting.
The angry protesters, who were objecting to US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, also threw tomatoes at the delegation’s car as they left, a video posted online showed.
Some five protesters kicked one of the doors of the car, which had US consular license plates, and ripped the plastic casing off a side mirror, Reuters reported.
Samir Hazboun, head of the Bethlehem Chamber of Commerce, said the group had been holding a training session for local businesspeople about digital commerce with an American expert and a delegation from the US consulate in Jerusalem.
“We were surprised when a number of angry protesters held an extraordinary protest, which forced us to end the course and for the American trainer to leave immediately with the American consulate delegation,” he told AFP.
