Several thousand Palestinians in Hamas-ruled Gaza marched against Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday, calling him a traitor.

Several thousand Palestinians marched in two Gaza towns in the Wednesday protests. Demonstrators hoisted effigies of Abbas and other Palestinian negotiators draped with Israeli flags and chanted, Go home, traitors. Others held up photos of Abbas with his face crossed out.

The protests were sparked by the contested Palestine papers, roughly 1,600 documents about a decade of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations leaked by Al-Jazeera satellite TV. Al-Jazeera says the documents show Abbas made far-reaching concessions on Jerusalem
