Palestine Supporters Rally at London Protest

Demonstrators gathered in London, England, to rally support for Palestine on Sunday, May 9, following protests in Gaza and Jerusalem.

An event flyer said the protest in London was held to “call on the UK government to impose sanctions on Israel.”

The Palestine Red Crescent Society said more than 200 people were injured during clashes at Al-Aqsa Mosque and other parts of East Jerusalem on Saturday night during protests against Israeli settlement in the neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah.
