Hundreds of Palestinians protest Kerry’s visit to Ramallah

( Hundreds of Palestinians gathered in the streets of Ramallah to protest U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s visit with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Friday.

According to Reuters, Palestinian demonstrators evoked the popular street protests of the “Arab Spring” by chanting, “Kerry, you coward, there’s no place for you in Palestine!”

Palestinian leaders have accused Kerry of pro-Israel bias during the U.S.-brokered Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations. Specifically, they have dismissed a plan for Israel to retain limited control over the Jordan Valley, which Israel considers vital to its security.
