People in Muslim-majority countries held protests to show their support for Palestinians in Gaza, demanding freedom for Palestine and an urgent end to brutal Israeli air raids.

People in various states such as Iran, Egypt, Malaysia, Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon, Turkey, Syria, Yemen, and Qatar held demonstrations on Friday to slam Israeli crimes in Gaza, where the occupation air raids have already claimed the lives of more than 4,000 Palestinians.

'Gaza is not alone'

People in the Iranian capital of Tehran convened at Palestine Square in thousands to voice their support for Palestine. 

Demonstrators held banners in condemnation of the Israeli crimes and the regime's supporters in the West. They also called for the liberation of the Palestinian lands and displayed the photos of General Qassem Soleimani, a top anti-terror commander who was asssassinated by the United States in January 2020. 

"I'm here to send this message to Israel that Gaza is not alone and we are standing beside the innocent Palestinian people," one of the participants told Mehr News Agency. 

Multiple cities across Iran also witnessed pro-Palestinian demonstrations following Friday prayer. 

Huge protests in Egypt

Tens of thousands of people have taken to the streets in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, and other main cities across the country, demanding the opening of the Rafah crossing to allow aid for Palestinians who have been under Israel’s total siege and bombardment for fourteen days.

Several thousand people gathered in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, despite a heavy deployment of security forces, calling for Israel to stop its bombardment of the Gaza Strip, one of the most densely populated areas in the world.
