2 Apr 2012 - 12:02

Islam Times - People around the world show their support for Palestine. It is Land day, a day that started with a peaceful protest in 1976 against Israel’s occupation of Palestine. Several people were killed by Israeli forces on that day.

Protests and marches are held annually through out the world from that day on in favor of Palestine. This year people worldwide protested in front of Israeli Embassies where there is one and where there isn’t, people held their demonstrations and protests elsewhere. Iranians have also been active on this day.

Pro-Palestinian activists gathered in the South-Western Iranian city of Khoramshahr.

Around five hundred NGOs around the world organized a march to peacefully protest Israel’s occupation of Palestine on Land day. Israel used brutal force against the peaceful protestors in the occupied territories.
