Palestinians worry political divide is seeping into social fabric

Some Palestinians feel the divisions in their leadership is behind dwindling protest attendance in the occupied West Bank.

    Israel's defence minister has warned protesters in Gaza that anyone who demonstrates on the border is risking their lives. Eighteen protestors have been killed in Gaza since Friday - and hundreds of others have been injured.

    With West Bank solidarity protests not matching their Gazan counterparts, many Palestinians say they are angry not only with Israel, but also their own, divided leadership.
