As the convoy of U.S. Ambassador, Dan Shapiro, was driving in the West Bank city of Ramallah on Tuesday, several Palestinians threw their shows at the convoy to protest the American stance regarding the Palestinians U.N statehood bid, and its ongoing support to the Israeli occupation.

Local sources reported that the Ambassador was in Ramallah to participate in an event organized by the U.S embassy at a local restaurant in the city.

The event was held so that the ambassador can meet with several Palestinians, and businesses, supported by the USAID, the Palestine-Info reported.

Responding to Facebook calls, a number of youth then gathered near the event location and when the convoy of the U.S. Ambassador arrived, they started throwing their shows at it.

The Palestinian police and security forces removed the youth from the scene, local sources said.
