Some 45,000 Moroccans have taken to the streets in two main cities of the country to express anger over the deadly Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip during the eight-day period of November 14-21.
The demonstrations took place on Sunday in the country’s largest city Casablanca and the capital city of Rabat, where protesters slammed the Tel Aviv regime for “crimes against humanity” in the besieged Palestinian territory.
The demonstrators also expressed solidarity with the Palestinians of Gaza.
Waving Palestinian and Moroccan flags, the protesters shouted slogans such as “The army of (the Prophet) Mohammad (PBUH) will return, liberation is at hand.”
Angry demonstrators also condemned the US officials for supporting the Israeli war on Gaza.
Over 160 Palestinians, including many women and children, were killed and about 1,200 others were injured in more than 1,500 attacks carried out by the Israeli regime on Gaza.
Palestinian resistance fighters incessantly poured rockets and missiles onto the Israeli cities, killing at least five Israelis, including one soldier, in retaliation for the deadly attacks.
Egypt announced on November 21 that the Israeli regime and the Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas, had reached a ceasefire agreement.
The recent Israeli military operation against the Gaza Strip is Tel Aviv’s second deadly attack on Gaza in about four years. The Israeli regime waged a 22-day war on the densely populated Palestinian enclave in 2008, which killed more than 1,400 Palestinians, including at least 300 children.
