The Arabic-language Facebook group, entitled Thawrat al-Karameh (The Dignified Revolution) is calling for rallies to take place after the traditional Friday prayers in Gaza City, Khan Yunis and Rafah as well as in the enclave's eight refugee camps.

"Gaza's youth is going to take part in a huge popular movement which will change the face of history, inspired by the revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt," the organisers wrote on the page, which was created on January 28, just days after tens of thousands of Egyptians took to the streets to call for the removal of President Hosni Mubarak.

Many of the group's members appear to be supporters of the secular Fatah party of president Mahmud Abbas, which is locked in bitter rivalry with Gaza's Hamas rulers, and which dominates the Western-backed Palestinian Authority.

Security officials in Gaza have been interrogating numerous bloggers and young people, trying to discover who is behind the call.
