Hundreds of people protested Israeli attacks on Gaza in Brussels on Wednesday, in solidarity with Palestinians under Tel Aviv’s offensive since Monday.
The demonstrators gathered at Schuman Square, located in the center of buildings of the EU Commission, the EU Council and the EU Foreign Affairs Council.
They carried placards that read “We are not free until Palestine is free”, “Jerusalem is our red line” and “End the occupation,” and chanted pro-Palestine slogans, demanding freedom for Palestine and condemning Israel.
Several protesters carried photographs of children who were killed as a result of the relentless attacks on Gaza.
Also, the flags of many Muslim countries, including those of Palestine and Turkey, were waved during the protest.
Worldwide demonstrations in solidarity with Palestine have been underway since this weekend to protest Israel’s deadly offensive on Gaza.
As of Wednesday, at least 227 Palestinians have been killed, including 64 children and 38 women, in Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip since May 10, according to the Gaza-based Health Ministry.
