ISLAMABAD – Hundreds of thousands of protesters have poured onto the streets across the world in support of Palestinians, condemning Israel’s ongoing aggression in the Gaza Strip and calling for an immediate ceasefire.
More than 11,000 Palestinians have lost their lives since Israel started its ruthless bombardment campaign on the besieged enclave over a month ago in response to Hamas’ surprise attack.
Israel has put Gaza — home to 2.3 million people — under siege amid ongoing ground battles with Hamas. In the last few days, more than 20,000 Palestinians have been forced to relocate to the south of the strip as Israeli forces have laid siege on major hospitals in the enclave.
Israeli attacks on Gaza have prompted protests in various countries including England, Indonesia, Spain and others.
