US President Barack Obama’s speech at the UN General Assembly has infuriated Palestinians, Israel’s Haaretz newspaper reported on Thursday.

Earlier in the day, hundreds of people took to the streets in Gaza, and a protest rally was held in Ramallah in the West Bank, with protesters chanting anti-American slogans and calling Obama a “hypocrite” and a “supporter of killers”.

Speaking at a UN General Assembly session in New York on Wednesday, Obama said that the US would veto any UN Security Council move to recognize Palestinian statehood.
