On Friday, Britain and Pakistan witnessed demonstrations to protest the Israeli incursions into Al-Aqsa, the attacks on worshipers, and the bombing of the Gaza Strip.
Hundreds of protesters gathered in front of the Israeli embassy in London, at the invitation of organizations such as the "Palestinian Forum in Britain", "Friends of Al-Aqsa Mosque", the "Solidarity with Palestine" campaign, the "Stop the War" coalition and the "Muslim League in Britain".
The demonstrators raised slogans condemning the Israeli attacks on Al-Aqsa and the Palestinians.
"What happened is not an act of violence, but ethnic cleansing and colonization by illegal settlers," said Bin Jamal, head of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign in Britain.
He added – in his speech – "You will hear the declaration of a cease-fire from the mouths of politicians, but this will not be achieved until the siege on Gaza is lifted and the arbitrary arrests are over."
Faris Al-Tamimi from the Palestinian Forum also held the government of Prime Minister Rishi Sunak responsible for what is happening in the Palestinian territories, saying, "The British government established this state at our expense? It is the one that still supports this rogue state against the law, which the major human rights organizations in the world describe as a state." Apartheid".
In Pakistan, local media reported that many cities witnessed demonstrations after Friday prayers, in rejection of the Israeli attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Palestinians.
