Massive Pro-Palestinian protest held in Paris ahead of Netanyahu’s visit (WATCH LIVE)
Pro-Palestinian demonstrators have gathered in the centre of Paris to protest against the upcoming visit of Benjamin Netanyahu to the French capital. The Israeli Prime Minister is due to meet French President Emmanuel Macron on Sunday.
People carrying Palestinian flags gathered in Place de la République in the capital on Saturday, as seen from photos and videos on social media. Some protestors were holding signs reading “Boycott Israel” and “Free Palestine.” Others held banners saying that US President Donald Trump and Netanyahu “follow Nazi steps”.
In the meantime, a much smaller group of pro-Israeli protesters also gathered in Place de la République, as could be seen on Ruptly’s live video stream.
