Several rallies took place Saturday in different cities in Morocco and Tunisia in solidarity with Palestinians in Gaza who are experiencing a bloody Israeli onslaught.
In Marrakech in northern Morocco, a rally was organized by the pro-Palestine Moroccan Initiative for Support where speakers affirmed their support to the Palestinian people.
A rally in Casablanca demanded pressure on the US and other Western pro-Israel powers to stop backing the Israeli onslaught against Gaza.
Meanwhile, hundreds in Tunisia participated in a rally in Tunis to protest Israeli attacks on Gaza. The demonstration was organized by the Tunisian opposition main bloc, the National Salvation Front.
“The Tunisian people are completely in solidarity with the Palestinian people,” said Ahmed Najib Chebbi, head of the bloc.
“The war on Gaza revealed the resistance capacity to steadfastness, which inflicted heavy losses on the Israeli army,” he added.
The National Salvation Front is Tunisia’s major opposition coalition that consists of five parties, including the Ennahda Movement.
Israel has launched relentless air and ground attacks on the Gaza Strip — including hospitals, residences, and houses of worship — since a cross-border attack by the Palestinian resistance group Hamas on Oct. 7.
At least 11,078 Palestinians have been killed, including 4,506 children and 3,027 women.
The Israeli death toll is nearly 1,200, according to official figures.
