Thousands Rally in Support of Palestine At Zoo Lake, South Africa

Thousands of people took to the streets of Johannesburg on Sunday to demonstrate solidarity with the Palestinian people. This comes after a truce between Israel and Hamas to exchange prisoners and hostages ended, and the Israeli Defence Forces continued its war in Gaza. According to Al Jazeera, Palestinian officials have reported more than 800 people killed in Gaza since Saturday, December 2, 2023.

Previously, civilian death tolls in Gaza, following the Hamas raid that killed and kidnapped Israelis, were monitored across Africa, whose long history of struggling for freedom and independence has led a growing number of leaders and observers to call for a durable peace.
