Series of pro-Gaza rallies held around the world


Demonstrations have been held in several countries in support of the people of Gaza.

Protesters took to the streets of the Yemeni capital Sana’a, condemning Israel and calling on Egypt to open its border with the war-torn Gaza Strip.

Taking part in the Sana’a march, Abdulrahman Al-Selwi said: “We’re here to show solidarity with our brothers in Gaza, who’re blockaded and abused by the Zionists in collaboration with our Arab brothers.”

In South Africa, thousands of people marched towards the parliament buildings in Cape Town. The Muslim Judicial Council in the country has called for the government to expel the Israeli ambassador over the Gaza crisis.

Pro-Palestinian demonstrators rallied in Paris and London, calling on Western governments to do more to help bring an end to more than four weeks of conflict.

Demonstrations were also held in Iran, the US, Germany and Australia.

The UN estimates that more than 1,900 people have been killed in Gaza since Israel launched its military operation in the Palestinian enclave.
