Thousands of supporters of exiled Palestinian strongman Mohammad Dahlan protested Thursday in Gaza against the reported sacking of dozens of members of the security forces who back him.The demonstration came as a trial opened in the occupied West Bank against Dahlan on charges of corruption, seven months after a Palestinian court sentenced him to two years in jail for defamation.In May, a West Bank court sentenced Dahlan, who lives in the UAE, to two years in jail – effectively barring him from ever running in general or presidential elections.One of his lawyers, Sevag Torossian, described the trial, which has been adjourned to Dec. 28, a "demolition machine" operated by Abbas against Dahlan.
