Members of the Democratic Current Alliance will launch a number of pro-Palestine events on Monday across Egypt, announced a founding member of the Egyptian Popular Current.

The day, dubbed Palestine Day, will be held to express solidarity with the Palestinian people and their resistance to the ongoing Zionist assault on Gaza.

The day will be celebrated at the headquarters of the Alliance in several governorates, including Kafr El-Sheikh, Alexandria, Monoufia and Ismailia.

Over 1,916 Palestinians have been killed since Israel launched its war on the besieged Gaza Strip a month ago. Palestinians have killed 67 Israelis, almost all soldiers.

The Democratic Current Alliance is a recently formed coalition of Leftists, Nasserists and Liberal parties and movements. Its founding members include the Constituion party, the Socialist Popular Alliance, Al-Karama party and Freedom Egypt party.
