Dozens of Palestinians protested against the gun attacks on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish supermarket, in the West Bank city of Hebron on Saturday.

Saturday's demonstration was organized by the Hebron-France Association for Cultural Exchanges.

"This is a stand alongside the French people, who usually stand by the Palestinians. The French people are shocked by these acts that violate their values, especially the freedom and the freedom of speech," the organization's head, Anwar Abu Aisha, said.

Since Wednesday, and after the gunmen were held at bay in two sieges, 17 people have been killed along with the three hostage-takers, who were shot dead by police.

The simultaneous stand-offs northeast of Paris and at the supermarket in the capital reached a violent end on Friday  as police stormed the two locations.


The attack on Charlie Hebdo's Paris offices led to the deaths of 12 people, including some of the country's most renowned caricaturists and two policemen.

The satirical magazine's decision to publish cartoons featuring the Prophet Mohammed nine years ago, led to criticism from some Muslims. The portrayal of images of the Prophet is forbidden in the Koran.
