Protests in old city
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, June 4: Scores of people took to the streets in different parts of the old city here on Friday against Israel’s raid on the Gaza bound aid ships earlier this week.
Witnesses said the protests erupted in Nowshera after Hurriyat Conference (G), chairman, Syed Ali Shah Geelani, left the area. People raising anti-Israel slogans tried taking out a procession. However, police and paramilitary CRPF men resorted to baton charge and fired numerous tear smoke canisters to disperse them. Protesters offered stiff resistance and retaliated with stones triggering clashes that continued till late in the evening.
The traffic on the Soura-Nowshera was disrupted and shopkeepers also downed their shutters.
Youth also staged protests in other parts of the old city including Bohri Kadal and Kawdara against the Israeli aggression.
