Dozens protest against Israel

Dozens of people gathered in Prague on Thursday evening to support Palestinians and call for the end of the Gaza Strip blockade. The event was held by the “Not in Our Name! Initiative for a Just Peace in the Middle East.” The protesters met at the top of Wenceslas Square, some of them carrying banners with anti-Israeli slogans. Former foreign minister Jan Kavan also attended, calling for protests to continue. The march ended at the Israeli embassy, with the demonstrators lighting candles for the victims of the conflict in the Gaza Strip. No incidents were reported.
