Pro-Palestinian Protests Across the World

Published May 17th, 2021 - 07:32 GMT

Since the start of the turmoil between Palestine and Israel, dozens of pro-Palestinian protests flared across the world including in Arab countries such as Qatar, Jordan, Lebanon and Bahrain.

As well, thousands of people in the UK, United States, Ireland and France held pro-Palestinian rallies to denounce the Israeli action in taking over people's homes in Sheikh Jarrah and to slam Israel's violent airstrikes on Gaza which lead to the death of 197 civilians till this moment.

Many foreign celebrities joined voices to support Palestinian rights to live safely and against the evictions of people from their houses including Bella Hadid who took to the streets with protesters in America. Hollywood actor Mark Ruffalo also released a petition in favor of Palestine asking the US government to impose sanctions on Israel.
