Ahed in London March for Solidarity With The Palestinian People

Life returns to normal in Gaza but wounds are still open

"From the river, to the sea, Palestine will be free", she declared.

"Palestine has the right to exist but sadly that is a right that is increasingly threatened", said Labour MP Richard Burgeon. Politicians, campaign groups, church communities must engage here and globally to ensure that the peoples of Palestine and Israel can find ways together of living in peace and justice.

Over the day, 62 Palestinians are killed and more than 2,400 are wounded by Israeli fire, according to Gaza authorities.

The paper reported that Israeli forces broke into al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem after midnight on Saturday and forced dozens of Muslim worshippers out, provoking clashes with them.

Demonstrators held banners calling on the United Kingdom to stop arming Israel, as marchers called for an end to "unprecedented attacks" on Palestinians by Israel.

Last week's escalation of violence, during raids on Gaza, killing 25 Palestinians, and four Israelis, is both distressing and dangerous-and a reminder of the risk that full-scale conflict can return at any time.


"We can not stand by or stay silent at the continuing denial of rights and justice to the Palestinian people", Corbyn wrote.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn supported the march on Twitter.

The papers said that three Palestinians youths were injured with rubber-coated steel bullets during clashes that erupted with Israeli forces in the village of Kafr Qaddum, to the east of the occupied West Bank city of Qalqilia.

The embassy's move from Tel Aviv - an global first - confirms Trump's announcement in December that Washington would recognize the holy city as Israel's capital, infuriating Palestinians who see east Jerusalem as the capital of their own future state.

The Palestinians pre-emptively rejected any U.S. peace proposal amid concerns it would fall far below their hopes for an independent state in the West Bank, east Jerusalem - which they want as their capital - and Gaza, lands captured by Israel in the 1967 war.
