The United Kingdom’s largest demonstration for Gaza has just made history. Not only was it the biggest protest in solidarity with Gazan civilians in the UK, but it was also the largest in the world, at any time in history.
Hassan al-Hallaq, father of Kenan and Saji, survived the strike, but he lost his wife and sons. He speaks about his beautiful family in the interview above. This man is mourning the death of his wife and children after two Israeli missiles slammed into the building they were staying in on Sunday, killing Hassan Al Hallaq’s pregnant wife, his two sons, his mother, his sister and another child. They died despite the fact that Al Hallaq had earlier moved his family to the center of Gaza City at the behest of Israel, after it had warned Gazans living along the border to vacate for their own safety. More than 70 percent of those killed in Gaza have been civilians, the United Nations says.
