Hundreds of Swedes protest in solidarity with Palestinians
Hundreds of people in Stockholm have once again taken to the streets to show solidarity with Palestine as Israel keeps pounding the Gaza Strip after a seven-day truce expired.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA) - Monitoring: Around 600 protesters gathered in front of the Israeli embassy on Sunday to urge the government to pressure Israel in the face of an ongoing dire humanitarian situation in the besieged territory. They also called for a boycott of Israeli products and businesses.
The protesters backlashed the Swedish government's support for Israel, criticizing the government for complicity in Israel's war crimes in Gaza.
Later, the crowd held a march toward the city center chanting slogans including "boycott Israel" and "stop the genocide."
Protesters in several European countries have gathered for rallies to express support for Palestine against Israeli attacks on the besieged territory. They slammed their governments’ position and support for Israel.  They called for sanctions against Israel as well as breaking relations with the occupying regime.
Israel has ramped up its aggression against Palestinians across the West Bank since October 7, when it launched a genocidal war against the Gaza Strip. Hundreds of Palestinians have been killed and thousands of others injured by Israeli settlers or troops across the occupied territory since the onset of the war.
Around 16,000 people have so far been killed in Gaza with over 40,000 people wounded. According to Gaza’s Health Ministry, 70 percent of victims of Israeli strikes on the blockaded territory are women and children./Press tv
