Yesterday, at least 15 Palestinians have been killed and more than 1,400 others wounded by Israeli forces as thousands marched near Gaza’s border with Israel in a major demonstration marking the 42nd anniversary of Land Day.
Israeli forces fired live ammunition at protesters and used tear gas to push them back from a heavily fortified fence, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health.
Adalah, a legal centre for Palestinian rights in Israel, condemned the Israeli army’s use of force and stated:
“Live gunfire on unarmed civilians constitutes a brutal violation of the international legal obligation to distinguish between civilians and combatants.”
After the vigil we will be supporting the Stand-Up To Racism vigil Stand-Up to Islamophobia FaceBook details here
