The German and Portuguese ambassadors to Israel visited the museum at Birzeit University near Ramallah

However, the diplomatic visit turned into a near lynching scene within minutes. About a hundred Palestinians surrounded the German ambassador's car, vandalized it and even tried to harm him.

The reason for the attack was Germany's support of the war against Hamas in Gaza, led by activists from the PLO.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has also continued to express support for Israel's position, to the dismay of the Palestinians.

"I don't think the call that some are making for an immediate ceasefire, or a long ceasefire, which is essentially the same thing, is correct. It means that Israel would let Hamas recuperate and acquire new rockets so they can fire again," said Scholz.
