Tens of Palestinians staged a protest in front of the United Nations (UN), office in the Syrian capital Damascus on Monday, urging the UN to help stop the Israeli actions against the Palestinians.

Waving Syrian and Palestinian flags, the protesters chanted slogans about the need to open borders to reach and help the people in Palestine.

“Long lives Palestine,’’ they shouted while some of them set fire to an Israeli flag.

The protest, organized by the Palestinian factions in Syria, came in the wake of the confrontations taking place between the Israelis and the Palestinians in Gaza and Jerusalem.

Meanwhile, Israel on Monday assassinated Hasam Abu Harbid, a senior militant commander in the Gaza Strip, Israeli forces said, triggering a fresh barrage of rockets on Israeli cities.

Israel’s Shin Bet security service and the military said in a joint statement that warplanes struck and killed the commander of the Northern Division of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

Islamic Jihad is a militant group in Gaza that has been fighting alongside Hamas in the recent escalation.

He was a commander in the Islamic Jihad for over the past 15 years, according to the statement.

According to a military notice on Monday, some 3,150 rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip towards Israeli territory. About 460 of these rockets failed to reach Israel and fell within the Gaza Strip.
