Thousands of people are demonstrating today in many cities of Arab countries, in solidarity with the Palestinians, in the wake of last night’s bombing of a hospital in the Gaza Strip, which resulted in the death of hundreds of Palestinian civilians and has caused a wave of anger throughout the Muslim world.

Arab countries blamed Israel for the hospital strike, with Israel blaming the blow on the Palestinian Islamic Jihad group.

In the most populous Arab country, Egypt, thousands of people are protesting in various cities across the country, according to images shared by local media and social media, even though demonstrations are illegal in the country.

Earlier today, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi warned: “If I ask the Egyptian people to take to the streets, millions will come.”

It is noted that Egypt and Israel have signed peace agreements.

At Rafah, the border crossing to the Gaza Strip, aid workers waiting to enter the Palestinian enclave gathered to pray in memory of the victims of the hospital bombing, according to an AFP correspondent.

In the Tunisian capital, Tunis, thousands of protesters gathered again today in front of the French embassy, ​​expressing their anger at the deadly attack on the hospital.

“The removal of the ambassador (of France) is an obligation”, “French and Americans are allies of the Zionists”, shouted some demonstrators, according to AFP journalists.

Another demonstration is planned for today at noon in front of the US embassy building, in the northern suburbs of Tunis. Other demonstrations were held in other cities of the country.

During a meeting of the National Security Council, Tunisian President Kais Sayed denounced the “international silence” on the “genocides” committed, according to him, by the Israeli army against the Palestinians.

In Jordan, around 5,000 Jordanians protest for the second day in a row near the Israeli embassy in Amman. The number of protesters may increase despite the fact that security forces have blocked roads leading to the embassy.

Jordan, which has signed peace accords with the Jewish state, said Israel “bears responsibility for this serious incident”.

“Let’s be clear, we don’t want an embassy,” “No Zionist embassy on Jordanian soil,” and “No American embassy on Jordanian soil,” chanted protesters holding Palestinian flags.

Protesters also chanted slogans against Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, calling him a “traitor” and calling on Jordan’s King Abdullah II to “open the two bridges” linking the country to Israel.

Many held photos of US President Joe Biden and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on which were written in Arabic and English, “war criminals” and “partners in crime”.
