Hundreds demand Gaza ceasefire outside Spain’s Foreign Ministry

Protesters hold a banner reading "BDS" (Boycott, Disinvestment, Sanctions) during a rally in support of the people from the Gaza Strip, in the Palestinian territories, in Madrid on March 1, 2024.

Hundreds rallied outside the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Madrid on Friday, calling on the Spanish government to "stop the arms trade" with Israel and demanding an immediate ceasefire in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Footage shows crowds chanting and waving flags outside the building as they stood behind a large banner bearing the slogan: "Long live the struggle of the Palestinian people."

Organizers called for the impromptu rally after reports emerged from the Gaza Health Ministry on Thursday that 100 people were killed after Israeli troops "opened fire" as people gathered for food aid.

According to media reports, people rushed to secure food and medicine from aid trucks. The Gaza Health Ministry reported that at least 104 people were killed and 760 injured.
