( dpa ) - Thousands of Palestinian refugees shouted Monday "revenge, revenge" across Lebanon to protest Israel's blockade of the Hamas-run Gaza Strip.
Angry Palestinians marched through the Ain al-Hilweh camp in southern Lebanon and in 11 other camps across Lebanon, in a show of anger against Israel's action in Gaza.
Women clad in black, shouted, "Haniya, destroy Tel Aviv," referring to the sacked Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniya.
The angry demonstrators burned the US and Israeli flags while chanting "death to Israel."
Addressing the Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas, the crowd chanted, "They are slaughtering our people in Gaza and you are watching."
Gaza has now entered the fourth day of an Israeli blockade, which has triggered warnings of a humanitarian crisis.
Israel says it is acting to stop rocket fire on its territory by Gaza militants.
Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Seniora called on the United Nations and the Arab League to end the Israeli sanctions against Gaza.
"It is the duty of the Security Council, the United States, the European Union and the Arab League to act immediately to stop the Israeli offensive, and to denounce Israel," he said in a statement.
" Israel is profiting from the international silence ... to unleash its rage against the inhabitants of Gaza," he said.
There are 12 Palestinian refugee camps with around 367,000 refugees across Lebanon.
Similar rallies are being planned in other camps nationwide where schools and other public institutions including offices of the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, UNRWA, have been closed for the day.
Most camps in Lebanon have hoisted black banners and Palestinian flags were flying outside schools while patriotic songs blared from loudspeakers in most shantytowns.
