Pro-Palestinian demonstrators take to streets of Kupang City, Indonesia in wave of protests
As Hamas’ rocket fire is pit against Israel’s airstrikes, tensions are running high in the international community with thousands flooding the streets in Kupang City-Indonesia in protest at the rising death toll in Gaza.
Dozens of activist pro-Palestinian demonstrators from "Aliansi Pemuda NTT Peduli Palestina" rallied outside the Israeli Embassy in west London yesterday, holding up placards that read “Gaza: End the Siege” and “Freedom for Palestine.”
The roads were blocked as protesters, who had initially held the pavement on one side of the road, swamped the street causing traffic to come to a standstill.
Several members of the demo climbed on top of a sidewalk as the crowd took pictures and waved the Palestinian flag.
The police said that the protest was largely peaceful.
