Solidarity with Palestine across the world
Social media platforms flood with users standing in solidarity with Palestine and against Israeli aggression.
In solidarity with Palestine against the Israeli aggression, citizens of several Gulf states have tweeted in condemnation of the occupation's acts of violence.
As Gulf states normalize ties with "Israel", their people are standing against the Israeli occupation government that has been showering Gaza with missiles since the beginning of the aggression on August 5.
One of the scenes of Zionist crimes against innocents in the besieged #Gaza..— د.عـبدالله العـمـادي (@Abdulla_Alamadi) August 7, 2022
If the free world is not affected by the suffering and crying of these innocent children, how and when will be affected and interact effectively?#GazaUnderAttack pic.twitter.com/WcuzWd4HtK
The Grand Mufti of Oman, Ahmad Al-Khalili, condemned the "brutal aggression launched by the Zionist entity against the citizens, men, and women in the occupied land and Gaza," while calling on the Islamic nations to stand with Palestine.
إنّا لنُدين العدوان الغاشم الذي شنّه الكيان الصهيوني على المواطنين رجالًا ونساءً في أرض #فلسطين المحتلة وفي قطاع #غزة، وإنّا إذ نُدين هذا الإجرام السافر لندعو الأمة الإسلامية جميعًا أن تقف بكل قوة في وجه الكيان الصهيوني المعتدي، وأن تساند بالحال والمال إخواننا في الأرض المحتلة. pic.twitter.com/x3JNVS7q9X— أحمد بن حمد الخليلي (@AhmedHAlKhalili) August 6, 2022
The Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry condemned the aggression and considered it a "continuation of the crimes committed by the occupation forces..."

Statements of pro-Palestine solidarity by officials, journalists, and activists flooded the internet. Tweets from different Gulf countries expressed full support contrary to the will of the governments that have normalized relations with the Israeli occupation.
From Bahrain, a user tweeted a picture of the five-year-old Palestinian martyr, Alaa Qadoum, who was brutally murdered by an airstrike during the Israeli shelling of Gaza.
Another user, from Saudi Arabia, addressed other users who "fear tweeting in solidarity of Palestine," advising them on how to do this "safely".
Moreover, the chiefs of Moroccan political parties condemned the Israeli attack on the Gaza Strip, which claimed the lives of 31 martyrs and wounded more than 200 Palestinians so far in the ongoing aggression on the Gaza Strip since Friday afternoon.
The chiefs stressed the need to deal strictly and put pressure on "Israel" to stop the bloodshed that has been ongoing for many decades.
West stands in solidarity with Palestine
Sinn Féin MP for South Down, Chris Hazzard, tweeted in condemnation of the Israeli atrocities against Palestinians amid international silence, which is a clear sign of double standards, according to the MP.

Palestinian men, women & children are being killed daily
The actions of the colonial-settler state are as grotesque as Putin’s plundering of Ukraine

On her part, La France Insoumise MP Clémentine Autain slams in a tweet the French government's position on the Israeli aggression on Gaza as “scandalous”.
Israël s'est lancée dans la plus dramatique attaque depuis mai 2021. 28 morts, tous palestiniens, dont plusieurs enfants, et des centaines de blessés. #GazaUnderAttack— Clémentine Autain (@Clem_Autain) August 7, 2022
Et la France sort un communiqué renvoyant dos-à-dos Israéliens et Palestiniens !
According to Autain, “Israel” launched the most dramatic attack since 2021, and there are Palestinian deaths, while France is satisfied with a statement that equates the Israelis with the Palestinians.
In different Western states, activists took to the streets with Palestinian flags, condemning the Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people.
In the Austrian capital, Vienna, activists protested while waving Palestinian flags, condemning Israeli aggression.
