This week, pro-Palestinian protesters took place in different parts of the world amid the ongoing Israeli crackdown on Palestinians in the West Bank and Jerusalem and an aerial offensive on Gaza Strip. 
Among the cities that witnessed the protests were Milan; Brussels; Berlin; Doha; Dhaka; Bristol; Amman; Cardiff; Dublin; Paris ;Sydney ; Chicago; Liverpool ; Los Angeles; Amesterdam; Edinburgh and Damascus. 
Since Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting, started, the Palestinians have been protesting a number of escalatory measures adopted by Israel, including preventing them from praying inside Al-Aqsa mosque compound and planning to evict homes in Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood.
Moreover, both Israeli settlers and security forces have been attacking Palestinian protesters and civilians since then. 
The Israeli wave of violence - in the West Bank, Jerusalem and Gaza - has resulted in the injury and arrest of hundreds and death of tens of Palestinian people, and the numbers will seemingly increase in the coming days.
