Gaza factions declare July 1 “Day of Rage” against the Israeli annexation plan

June 28, 2020

Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip have declared a day of protest on July 1 – the so-called “Day of Anger” – against the annexation plan that the Israeli government wants to conclude in the West Bank.

This Sunday, the Palestinian enclave was the scene of the distribution of a few leaflets signed by various armed groups in the strip, calling on the Palestinians to unite on the day the Israeli government earliest took the initiative.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, under his coalition agreement with his former rival Benny Gantz, can submit a proposal to Parliament or his cabinet to annex the area conquered in the 1967 Six Day War.

With this perspective in mind, Talal Abu Zarifa, the senior man in charge of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (FDLP), has announced to journalists that the Palestinians will be leading a mass demonstration in Gaza City on July 1.
