A “broad coalition” of protesters will meet outside the east entrance to call for “an immediate end to violence and repression by Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) in Sheik Jurrah, near East Jerusalem, Occupied Palestine, where Palestinians are facing more ethnic cleansing through forced evictions and attacks by the IOF.” They are also demanding the United States “immediately” end all military aid to Israel.
Tensions in the Middle East have boiled over in recent days, with Hamas in the Gaza Strip and the Israeli military exchanging rocket fire. 122 people have been killed in Gaza along with seven in Israel, including 31 Palestinian children and a 6-year-old Israeli boy.
