KARACHI, Pakistan – In an overwhelming display of solidarity with the Palestinian people, hundreds of

the silence of the international community and their support for Israel’s actions.

by the international community. “We stand in solidarity with Palestinians,” he stated, “as they continue to
fight against all odds.”

supplies are scarce due to the ongoing crisis. He also highlighted the efforts of Alkhidmat in providing
humanitarian assistance to Palestinian brothers.
During the event, a monumental 100-ft Palestinian flag was unveiled, symbolizing the resilience and unity
of the protestors. A poignant photo gallery showcased images of injured Palestinian children and the
devastation caused by bombings, serving as a stark reminder of the tragedy unfolding in Gaza.
The event concluded with a torchbearer march along Press Club Road, where participants passionately
chanted slogans for Palestine, further underlining the unwavering support for the Palestinian cause.

with the Palestinian community and to call for an end to the violence and aggression taking place in Gaza.
