Take action: Stop Israeli Terror - Palestinians say take to streets against Gaza attack

From Socialist Worker - Israel’s murderous assault on Gaza has created outrage round the world. More than 190 people have been killed in over 1,300 air strikes. Another 1,000 have been injured as Socialist Worker went to press.

Palestinian journalist Lara Aburamadan, spoke from Gaza. She told Socialist Worker, “We here in Gaza have the courage to resist.

“I hope that all of you will have the courage to go onto the streets to protest in support of us. We worried we might be forgotten. Thank you for your support.”

Dr Mona Qasim El-Farra works in a hospital in Gaza. She said, “I am appalled that Israeli propaganda claims they don’t attack civilians.

“At least 70 percent of those killed are civilians. The injured are mostly civilians. Civilians are suffering.

"I care for all children. I am a human being. I am a physician. But there is a huge difference between Israeli children running to their shelters and Palestinian children being bombed and killed with no defence.”

The Egyptian government has proposed a ceasefire. But Hamas, which controls Gaza, has said there is no point without a deal.

Lara said, “It’s sad and calm here—like the city of ghosts. No one is out. There are no cars on the streets, only ambulances.

“Israeli warplanes are flying over the city all the time and they are bombing every couple of minutes. I’m staying at home sitting on the internet to cover the situation. more
