Israeli bombing of Rafah triggers pro-Palestine protests across UK

Protesters have taken to the streets of Britain in response to Israel’s attack on a camp for displaced Palestinians in Rafah.

Thousands staged demonstrations against Sunday’s air strike on the Tel al-Sultan shelter which killed at least 45 people.

Many had fled to the so called “safe zone” after being evacuated from the east of the Gazan city by the Israel Defense Forces.
