New Delhi, Jan 17 (ANI): Hundreds of Muslim protestors continued to protest against Israels attack on Gaza here on Saturday.
“This protest is aimed at the Government of India and the message that we give today from this protest is that the Government should not just speak, it should act. It has to remove the diplomatic relations with Israel. It has to break all strategic and military relations with Israel,” said Abdul Rashid Qureshi, a spokesperson of the protestors group.
According to the spokesperson, they also protested against USA, UK and United Nations for their alleged pro-Israeli actions.
More than 1140 Palestinians have been killed since Israel launched its offensive against Gaza on December 27 to force Hamas to stop rocket attacks on its territory.
Israel has accused Hamas of sheltering among the civilian population and using sites such as mosques and schools as military posts. (ANI)
