IP - Carrying Palestinian flags, protesters call for an immediate cease-fire while criticizing British government's stance on Israeli crimes in Gaza.

Iran PressEurope: A massive rally was held in London on Saturday to protest Israeli attacks and demand an immediate cease-fire in the Gaza Strip.

Thousands of protesters gathered at Parliament Square to voice solidarity with Palestinians in Gaza, where more than 34,300 people have been killed by Israeli attacks since Oct. 7.

Carrying Palestinian flags, the protesters called for an immediate cease-fire in the besieged Palestinian enclave and criticized the British government's stance on Israel.

"Free Palestine," "Stop the genocide" and "Rishi Sunak, you can't hide, we charge you with genocide," were some of the many slogans chanted by pro-Palestine protesters during the march that continued toward Hyde Park.

Protesters from various anti-Israel Jewish groups were among the participants in the rally.

Bliss called on the British government to "immediately suspend" the provision of arms and financing to “Israel's war machine."

Israel has pounded the Gaza Strip since the Hamas incursion, which Tel Aviv says killed nearly 1,200 people. At least 34,388 Palestinians have since been killed, mostly women and children, besides causing mass destruction, displacement, and severe shortages of necessities.

Israel is accused of genocide by the International Court of Justice. An interim ruling in January ordered Tel Aviv to ensure its forces do not commit acts of genocide, and guarantee that humanitarian assistance is provided to civilians in Gaza.
