The protesters gathered at the city’s mosque and marched with signs protesting the violence and the killing of civilians, as well as photographs of the victims and children’s dolls wrapped in red-stained stained cloths. The march ended with speeches by public figures, including Sheikh Raed Salah, the leader of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel.
