100 cities came to street to show solidarity with Palestinians

More than Tens of thousands of people from over 100 cities all over the world have participated in protests in solidarity with Palestinians.

According to al Jazeera news network; more than Tens of thousands of people have taken to the streets in cities around the world, demanding an end to deadly Israeli air raids on the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli bombings on Gaza come after weeks of mounting tensions over the looming forced expulsion of Palestinian families from Sheikh Jarrah, a Palestinian neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem that Jewish settlers have been trying to expel them from for decades.

The situation escalated when Israeli police stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem’s Old City – the third-holiest site in Islam – and wounded hundreds of Palestinian worshippers during several days of violence. Protests broke out across the occupied territories and inside Israel. The Palestinian faction, Hamas, which governs Gaza, launched rockets towards Israel, after it missed a deadline to remove its forces from the mosque compound.
