More than 5,000 angry Palestinian security officers marched through the streets of Gaza City, firing in the air, throwing rocks at the parliament building and shutting down the center of the city in the most intense outburst of anger at the Hamas-led government since widespread strikes began three days ago. The security officers' protest demanding that the Hamas-led government pay them their long overdue wages led to fears that the labor unrest could spiral into violence across the already chaotic Gaza Strip.
