One protester, Saoussane, 41, expressed solidarity with the Palestinian people, particularly the innocent lives lost in the conflict. “How can we talk about collateral damage with 17,000 dead? It is genocide—it is not even a war anymore,” she declared.

According to the health ministry in Gaza, the relentless air strikes and ground invasion by Israel have resulted in the death of at least 17,997 Palestinian people, mostly women and children.
