Israeli police arrested more than 150 Palestinian teen-agers in the occupied Gaza Strip after two days of anti-Israeli demonstrations.

Since Sunday, hundreds of Palestinian high school students have hurled stones at Israeli cars and blocked main roads with burning tires, a symbol of resistance to the 19-year Israeli occupation.
