Palestinians in Gaza protest against Syria's Assad
The group of mostly Islamic University students hoisted Palestinian and Syrian flags and burned images of President Bashar Assad on Tuesday. They shouted "Bashar go to hell" to protest his violent crackdown on opponents.
Assad has long hosted and supported leaders of the Islamic Hamas movement, which rules Gaza. But as the death toll in Syria swells, Hamas has been trying to distance itself from its patron.
Hamas police authorized the protest.
