More than 100 people attended a rally organised by Ógra Shinn Féin in support of the people of Palestine and Gaza at Free Derry Corner on Wednesday evening.
Local Sinn Fein councillor, Colly Kelly, attended the rally and said the people of Derry would continue to show their support for the people of Palestine and Gaza.
“We wanted to send our solidarity to the people of Gaza and Palestine and to also show our anger and opposition to the continued injustices and slaughter that the Israelis are carrying out on the Palestinian people,” said Colr. Kelly.
“The footage of whole neighbourhoods decimated, homes, schools, hospitals all gone is stark. Almost half of this besieged region is now under the control of the Israeli military.
“The people of Derry will always stand in solidarity with the people of Palestine and Gaza,” added Colr. Kelly.
