Argentina: Thousands march on Israel embassy in Buenos Aires on 'Nakba Day'

Thousands marched on the Israel embassy in Buenos Aires on Tuesday, to protest the recent wave of Israeli killings that has claimed the lives of at least 60 Palestinians since monday, during unrest related to the US embassy relocation to Jerusalem. Protesters carried flags and banners as they assembled in front of the Israeli embassy on 'Nakba Day' where police had set up barricades. «It is... Еще not a conflict; it is an occupation and genocide against the Palestinian people,» Mirta Israel, member of Argentine Committee of Solidarity with Palestine said during an address to the protesters. «We demand that Israel submit to international law and comply with the UN resolution, as well as that Argentina break any diplomatic and commercial ties with the segregationist, apartheid Israeli regime,» she added. The rally was organised by the Argentine Committee of Solidarity with Palestine and reportedly called on other organisations and individuals to participate. Over 60 Palestinians have been killed and 2,700 injured in protests since Monday, sparking international outcry. 'Nakba' — meaning 'Catastrophe' in Arabic — refers to the 1948 Palestinian exodus, where an estimated 700,000 Palestinians were expelled to make way for the newly created state of Israel.
