Srinagar, Jan 12 (ANI): Youths gathered here to protest against the continuing aggression of Israel against Palestine.
Separatist leader Altaf Khan, head of Jammu Kashmir Peoples Freedom League (JKPFL) lead the protest.
The protestors marched around Lal Chowk area, raised anti-Israel and anti-American slogans and expressed their solidarity with the Palestinians.
“We want to ask United Nations that when people die in one country then such a big hue and cry is created. Now, the future of whole Palestine is in jeopardy. No one is coming forward to protect the interest of Palestinians. Nine hundred people have died in Gaza strip and about 3000 people have been injured. Still United Nations has not done anything for Palestine,” said Altaf khan, head of Jammu Kashmir Peoples Freedom League.
The demonstration dispersed peacefully after flag of Israel was burnt.
The protesters also blamed America for its continuous support to Israel.
Protestors also condemned the brutality against innocent children and women.
Many innocent Palestinians have been killed among whom a large number happen to be civilians, since Israel launched its offensive on December 27 to curtail Hamas” rocket attacks on its territory from Gaza.
Israel has accused Hamas of taking shelter among the civilian population and using sites such as mosques and schools as military posts. (ANI0
