Ceasefire in Gaza demanded by the protesters in London rally

Ceasefire in Gaza demanded by the protesters in London rally

Thousands of pro-Palestinian protesters have gathered in London to call for a cease-fire in Gaza amid ongoing Israeli bombardment following a deadly attack by Hamas on its territory on October 7.

It was the fourth consecutive week of mass demonstrations in support of the Palestinians in the British capital since last month's attack by Hamas.

Israel launched a bombing campaign on the Gaza border on October 7 following a Hamas attack.

Demonstrators waved Palestinian flags and carried banners calling for an immediate ceasefire at a demonstration in central London's Trafalgar Square on Saturday.

A group of protesters carried a bundle of cloth depicting a child killed during an Israeli bombing campaign.

Sama Dabna, a 26-year-old Jordanian business consultant who attended the demonstration with her Palestinian friends, said she was tired of the flow of disturbing images from Gaza.

According to London's Police around 30,000 people attended the demonstration.

The force said it had arrested 11 people, including one for displaying a banner likely to incite hatred.

Pro-Palestinian groups say they plan to march in the British capital on Saturday, November 11, Armistice Day, to call for an immediate ceasefire in the conflict between Israel and Hamas.

On Friday, British Prime Minister Rishi Singh said that planning protests on November 11, a day to commemorate soldiers who died in the two world wars and subsequent conflicts, was "outrageous and senseless". 

He said there was a clear and present risk that a protest could desecrate the cenotaph and other war memorials, which would be "an affront to the British people and the values we stand for".

Dabna said she would be among those protesting on ceasefire day.

On Saturday, pro-Palestinian protests took place in cities across the UK, including Sheffield, Manchester, and Glasgow, where protesters waved Palestinian flags and called for an immediate ceasefire.
