As attacks on Gaza continue to escalate, Qatari residents will come together tonight to express solidarity to the people of Palestine.
A protest will be organised inside the Palestinian Embassy tonight, from 8pm-10pm, an official from the embassy told JustHere. “There’s no official ceremony, no donations required. Everyone is invited to stand together to show support to those suffering in Palestine,” said the official.

Israel’s airstrikes on the Gaza strip has reached the seventh day. According to a report by Al Jazeera English, the death toll had reached 189, and about 80% are reported to be civilians.; 1,350 people have been wounded; over 17,000 people are seeking shelter in UN compounds.
International efforts for a cease-fire between Israel and Palestinian group Hamas have been futile so far.
