Sunak calls for cancellation of protests against occupation of Gaza


British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said it was “provocative and shameful” to plan a demonstration next Saturday against the Israeli occupation of Gaza because it coincided with “Armistice Day”, which marks London’s First and Second World War dead.

On Tuesday, the British Prime Minister called on pro-Palestinian groups to cancel a march calling for an end to the Israeli occupation.

Until now, the aggression against Gaza has led to the fall of more than 10,000 martyrs, most of them women and children, the destruction of infrastructure and the displacement of most of the population.

Organizers of the demonstration ignored appeals by the British Metropolitan Police to postpone the demonstration, which had been planned for next Saturday.

Tens of thousands of people are expected to take part in demonstrations on the streets of London demanding an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

“We continue to believe that planning protests on Armistice Day is provocative and disrespectful, and we ask the organizers to reconsider,” Sunak’s spokesman told reporters.

He added that the government would carefully consider any request by the police to prevent the continuation of the protest.

Some observers fear Saturday’s demonstration could disrupt commemoration of “Remembrance Day,” which also falls on Sunday and includes two minutes of silence in honor of dead British soldiers.

Organizers have not indicated whether they plan to hold demonstrations on Sunday or on “Remembrance Day,” the culmination of celebrations honoring veterans of previous wars.

Organizers have vowed to avoid the Whitehall area of ​​central London, where the monument is located.

Notably, Israel was founded in 1948 on occupied Arab land and annexed Jerusalem and the West Bank in 1967. Throughout its 75 years, it has killed and arrested Palestinians, expanded settlement operations in the West Bank, and launched military operations. Attacks Islamic and Christian holy places in Gaza, and Jerusalem.

On October 7, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), and other Palestinian resistance groups launched Operation Al-Aqsa Flood against the Israeli occupation, killing around 1,600 Israelis so far. .

The Palestinian resistance has captured more than 200 Israelis and announced it wants to exchange them for more than 6,000 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli occupation prisons.

For its part, Israel continues its aggression against Gaza, bombing homes, schools, hospitals and mosques, which has led to the martyrdom of more than 10,000 Palestinians, most of them women and children, and injured more than 20,000, destroying entire neighborhoods. And most people are displaced.

A week ago, Israel launched a ground operation in Gaza and vowed to continue it until Hamas was eliminated, but it acknowledged painful losses in lives and equipment.
