Moroccans protest western countries’ support for Israel

Moroccan people gathered in capital Rabat to protest western countries and to express their solidarity with Palestinians

On Wednesday, local pro-Palestinian groups including the Moroccan Initiative for Support and Victory and the Action Group for Palestine organized a rally in Rabat to protest Western countries’ support for Israel and to show sympathy with Palestinians in Gaza.

During the rally, the participants raised banners which called for ending normalization between Morocco and Israel and closing the Israeli liaison office in Rabat.

Morocco normalized ties with Israel in 2020 after the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Sudan, bringing the total number of Arab countries that have ties with Israel to six as Egypt and Jordan had already concluded full peace treaties with Israel in 1979 and 1994 respectively.

Moroccan cities have seen protests and demonstrations in solidarity with the Palestinian people and to protest the Israeli attacks on civilians of Gaza almost every day.
