Palestinians protest against PA security co-operation with Israel, chant: “not in peaceful ways, we want bullets and rockets”

Headline: “A procession in Ramallah as a sign of opposition to the suppression of a protest vigil”
     "Hundreds of Palestinians today (Monday) [March 13, 2017] participated in a procession in Ramallah as a sign of opposition to the suppression of a protest vigil in the city by the PA Security Forces on Sunday, and to the attack on those participating in it…
The protest participants made calls condemning the actions of the Palestinian [PA] Security Forces, and demanded a settling of accounts with those involved in suppressing the participants and the journalists and in hitting them.
The participants called: ‘Not in peaceful ways and not diddly-squat, we want bullets and rockets’ (the chant apparently reflects opposition to PA security coordination with Israel in the case of terrorist Basel Al-A’araj, see below –Ed.), and ‘The [PA] military rule will fall.’”

Basel Al-A’araj – head of a Palestinian terror cell that planned to attack Israeli targets. Al-A'araj and his cell were arrested by the PA Security Forces in spring 2016 and held in prison until they were released on Sept. 9, 2016, largely due to a public Palestinian campaign. Israeli soldiers tried to arrest Al-A'araj in El-Bireh on March 6, 2017, but he resisted and opened fire on them at which point they shot and killed him.
