Palestinian Women Stage Anti-Israel Demos
Pyongyang, March 12 (KCNA) -- Hundreds of Palestinian women celebrated International Women's Day by staging demonstrations against Israel in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip on March 8.

In the West Bank, they marched to Qalandya checkpoint between Ramallah and Kuds, throwing stones at the Israeli soldiers, who responded with tear gas. In Gaza, women gathered in the Unknown Soldier Park, waving Palestinian flags and posters expressing solidarity for Shalabi, a Palestinian woman on hunger strike in an Israeli prison. They strongly demanded the Israeli authorities' immediate release of her.
