Thousands march in pro-Palestinian demonstration in South Africa's Cape Town

Thousands of South Africans have taken part in a march in support of Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip as Israel's war of aggression against the territory rages on.

During the Saturday protest, demonstrators demanded the South African government expel Israeli ambassador.

Marchers, who were led by the clergy from different faiths, chanted "free Palestine."

Iconic anti-apartheid cleric, Dr. Allan Boesak called for the Israeli embassy to be shut down.

"We are sick and tired of the apartheid Israel and we must demonstrate that with our actions" said Secretary General of the ruling African National Congress Fikile Mbalula, who echoed Boesak's call for the regime's embassy to be closed.
