Dozens of young Gazans forced a temporary shutdown of several aid organisations Monday in protest at the killings of three American Muslims of Palestinian origin in North Carolina last week.

“We came here today to close the US institutions for two hours. This event aims to denounce the policy of media blackout that occurred and the US media silence and the US official silence,” said activist Jamal Yaghi.

The activists forced the temporary closure of CARE, Mercy Corps, Amideast and three other aid organisations operating in the Gaza Strip that they associated with US interests.

“The blood of all victims is important, whatever their religion or their nationality,” Yaghi said in an address to the demonstrators who carried “Hate Crime” banners denouncing the 10 February killings.
