Thousands of Moroccans hold massive anti-Israel rally
(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Demonstration was held in front of the Moroccan parliament and is said to be part of the ‘Global March to al-Quds (Jerusalem),’ which is scheduled to commemorate the Palestinian Land Day on March 30.
Protesters set Israeli flags on fire, calling for the freedom of the al-Aqsa Mosque from Israeli occupation.
The protest also forced an Israeli diplomat, attending an international conference in the city, to leave Morocco immediately amid high anti-Israeli sentiments.
‘Global March to al-Quds (Jerusalem)’ began in various locations across the globe and is heading toward the countries that neighbor Palestine, namely Jordan, Egypt, Syria, and Lebanon, in order to get as close as possible to East al-Quds.
The initiative also includes demonstrations in front of Israeli embassies in the capitals of various countries as well as demonstrations in the main public squares of major cities around the world.
Since the occupation of East al-Quds, Israel has been trying to alter the identity of the city through measures such as the construction of illegal housing units for Israelis, the eviction of Palestinians, and the demolition of their houses.
