Cape Town protestors took to the streets in numbers to both echo their support for Palestinians and to call on President Cyril Ramaphosa to take some steps towards helping those affected by the ongoing violence in Gaza and Jerusalem.

Thousands of protestors subsequently march to the Parliament Building in Cape Town to share their thoughts with the president.

“We believe everyone deserves freedom. Our people (Palestinians) cannot pray in peace during this holy month, so we stand together against oppressive forces,” the organizer of the protest, Yusuf Mohamed, said.

Other pro-Palestinians had this to say about the ongoing violence: @priyavprabhakar said: “We absolutely need to hold Instagram accountable for blatant censorship on the sole issue (stories getting deleted, story views going down) of Palestine.

At this point, it’s way too widespread and targeted to be random or an accident.

@Yair_Rosenberg said: “The people of Gaza are caught between a messianic Hamas dictatorship that they can’t replace, and an Israeli response to Hamas that they cannot control. They deserve better, and it shouldn’t be controversial to say so.” @NickyMi50637242 said: “I won’t hide the fact that I am pro-Palestinians, but I think Israel intelligence is spending a lot of money paying a lot of money on impimpis [informers] and that is why they always get their target on time.”

@DiabolicalIdea said: “Almost as predictable as the periodic flare-ups of violence in Israel-Palestine is the barrage of dehumanizing, hyperbolic rhetoric that accompanies it. I can anticipate almost word-for-word what pro-Israelis and pro-Palestinians will say.

It’s like a Greek tragedy but for real. In other, reports indicates that no fewer than 20 people, including nine children, were killed by Israeli airstrikes in Gaza amid violent clashes over Jerusalem, Palestinian health officials have confirmed.

The airstrikes were launched after Palestinian militant groups fired rockets close to the holy city on Monday, May 10. According to Israel’s military, the strikes were carried out against armed groups, rocket launchers and military posts in Gaza after militants fired on the area for the first time since 2014.

It was gathered that the fight between the armed factions started as a result of clashes between Palestinians and Israeli police at Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.

Fed up locals paint speed bumps in the neighbourhood The rocket fire and Israeli airstrikes continued late into the night with loud explosions heard in Gaza City and across the coastal strip. The latest development is coming amid heightened tensions in Jerusalem during Ramadan.

The news publication also reported that Palestinian militants launched rockets from Gaza and Israel unleashed new air strikes against them in the early hours of Tuesday, May 11.
