In besieged Gaza, meanwhile, Palestinians marched toward the Nahal Oz siege gate on the territory’s eastern boundary with present-day Israel to show support for Al-Aqsa, which is increasingly under assault from Jewish settlers.
Gaza students Belal Dabour and Asem Alnabeh were present and offered live accounts via Twitter.
Alnabeh tweeted that marchers set off toward Nahal Oz from three locations in Gaza.
The day’s events as witnessed by Dabour and Alnabeh began when hundreds of people gathered in central Gaza City to march toward the Nahal Oz crossing with Israel east of Gaza City, according to Dabour.
As the marchers headed east thorough the Shujaiya section of Gaza City, more people joined the march, Alnabeh tweeted.
