Israeli bombing of Rafah triggers pro-Palestine protests across UK

A crowd carrying Palestine flags with some wearing the green bibs of the Friends of Al-Aqsa human rights movement were seen marching through the town. 

Friends of Al-Aqsa called for an emergency demonstration outside Downing Street in London

Posting on social media, it said: “Let’s mobilise for an emergency rally for Rafah. We have all seen the horrific videos. Spread the word and let’s make it a huge emergency rally for Rafah. Stop the Genocide.”

On May 8 the UN said the Gaza health ministry, which is run by Hamas, had identified 25,000 dead people, including 4,959 women and 7,797 children since the Oct 7 attacks on Israel.

The ministry said there are a further 10,000 corpses, but has not been able to secure information to meet its standard for identification, which includes full names and official ID numbers.
