Thousands of people around the world demonstrated their support for the Palestinian people during the protests some of the worst wars between Israel and Palestine since the 2014 Gaza war, with demonstrators from Canada to Japan saluting the flag and chanting “Free Palestine” on Saturday.
The demonstrations come as tensions and violence in the region grow, at least 145 Palestinians and 10 Israelis were killed, including children.
The violence began when Israeli security forces seized the Al-Aqsa Mosque during Ramadan last week, injuring many worshipers and causing Hamas to retaliate with rocket. Israeli police too sharply reduced the opponents protesting against the expulsion of Palestinians from their homes near Sheikh Jarrah.
The videos also showed Israeli Defense Iron Dome lighting the night sky when it found lots of rockets.
