Palestinian school girls and boys take part in a demonstration on March 16, 2010 in Gaza City to protest the reopening of a 17th century synagogue in Jerusalem, amid growing unrest in the Holy City. Hamas had earlier declared a "day of rage and alarm" over the inauguration of the rebuilt synagogue, which is near the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, sacred to both Jews and Muslims, and which Palestinians fear is the first step in an Israeli plan to destroy the Old City compound and rebuild a Jewish temple on its ruins.
