As many as 45,000 people protested outside the Israeli embassy in London on Saturday in a demonstration against Israel’s military operation in Gaza. According to The Independent, the protesters later marched toward Parliament, in the latest London protest against Israeli military action in Gaza since the start of the most recent conflict earlier this month. Protesters in other cities throughout the United Kingdom also held rallies against Israeli military action on Saturday, according to the report. Prior to this major rally, thousands of demonstrators in London protested last week, calling on Israel to halt its air and ground assaults. Saturday’s London protest occurred during a 12-hour cease-fire between Hamas and the Israeli military which ended after Hamas rejected a four-hour extension. More than 1,000 Palestinians have died in the fighting, the majority of whom were civilians. Israel’s death toll currently sits at 43, 40 of whom were soldiers. Palestinian casualties are much more significant due in part to Israel’s missile defense system — known as the Iron Dome — which prevents the vast majority of Hamas rockets from doing any damage.
