Thousands of people on Saturday 11 May 2019 local time thronged central London in an action calling for Israel to end occupation of Palestinian land and blockade of the Gaza Strip.

"Free Palestine", and "End the Siege in Gaza" shouted the crowd, carrying a pro-Palestinian placard, as quoted by Daily Sabah, Sunday (05/12/2019).

Demonstrations began at Portland Place and protesters marched through Oxford Circus and Trafalgar Square to reach Downing Street where British government offices were located.

ongoing human rights by Israeli forces, including the shooting of hundreds of unarmed Palestinian demonstrators in Gaza ... demanding their rights. "

Last week there was an increase along the Gaza border with nearly 700 rockets fired at Israel and hundreds of retaliatory air strikes by the Israeli air force.

"The increase in violence last week, during a raid in Gaza, killed 25 Palestinians and four Israelis, both sad and dangerous," he said.

He accused the British government of deafening silently, calling for criticism for "the killing of demonstrators - including children, paramedics and journalists - and other civilians, and demanding that Britain" freeze arms sales to Israel. "

Corbyn also criticized the US peace plan that had been anticipated and reaffirmed the promise of the British Labor Party to recognize the Palestinian state.

The Palestinian resistance icon Ahed al-Tamimi was among the protesters organized by the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign and the Stop the War Coalition.

"We will not be victims! We will continue to fight!" Ahed Tamimi said.

The 17-year-old man was arrested in late 2017 by Israeli authorities and later sentenced to eight months in prison for "attacking" an Israeli Defense Forces soldier.

Glen Oliver, a protester who came to join the march from Southampton, thought the international community did not react when "Palestinians were shot in cold blood."

Speaking to Anadolu, Oliver said: "They (Israel) seem to do what they want, when they like and nobody says anything."

"Our stupid foreign minister Jeremy Hunt condemned a number of Hamas bombs and said nothing about the destruction of Gaza, they (Israel) bombed Palestinian homes every day, every week."

"There, 25 Palestinians were killed this week, nothing about it at all. The ridiculous situation of the Eurovision Song Contest that took place in Tel Aviv was strange and people had to boycott it, nothing to do with it. So I'm here today to say end the bloodshed in Gaza and let's stand with Palestine. "

A small protest was also held by pro-Israeli activists as a counter-action, raising the Israeli flag and expressing support for Israel's right to defend itself from attacks by Gaza and Palestinian guerrillas.

Palestinian faction announces ceasefire Monday May 6 2019. Israel has refused to officially confirm the understanding of the ceasefire.

Meanwhile, even though a ceasefire has been agreed, tensions on the Israeli border and Gaza Strip re-occur during a weekly routine demonstration on Friday 10 May 2019.

A Palestinian was killed and 30 others were injured when thousands gathered on the Gaza Strip border Friday for weekly protests, according to the health ministry run by Hamas in Gaza.

The violence is seen as a big test of the calm that has taken place since last weekend's fierce fighting between Israel and Gaza guerrillas in the enclave in the Mediterranean.
