Large demonstrations against Israel’s assault on Palestinians in Gaza were staged across the US on Saturday. The public outpouring of support for Palestinians in US streets suggests that Washington’s pro-Israel policies are becoming increasingly unpopular, a trend supported by a recent poll on Israel’s latest aggression, which finds that young Americans are twice as likely to support Palestinian rights than Israeli occupation.
Tens of thousands of Americans held a demonstration in front of the White House in Washington, DC. Protestors travelled in buses from around the country to join the national rally, waving Palestinian flags and chanting “free Palestine” in the US capital.
Ministry of Health in Gaza Strip just requested everyone with any basic medical or health knowledge to immediately go to any hospital.
The Palestinian death toll from a devastating Israeli onslaught on the Gaza Strip rose to 1,283, according to a Health Ministry spokesman.
“At least 54 Palestinians were killed in Israeli bombardments in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, taking the death toll to 1,283,” Ashraf al-Qodra told Anadolu Agency.
He said that 170 people were also injured in Wednesday’s Israeli attacks.
