In Berlin, a group of people gathered to protest the current situation in Gaza, which was prompted by the Israeli army’s attack on Rafah. The police reported approximately 300 individuals at the Brandenburg Gate, waving Palestinian flags and chanting slogans. However, there was no attempt made to physically attack a press representative, and the situation remained calm.
In Neukölln, a spontaneous meeting was confirmed by the police spokesperson. There were reports of around 100 people gathered on the corner of Pannierstrasse and Sonnenallee, chanting “Free Palestine” and “Ceasefire Now.” Videos on social media also showed people spelling out “Rafah” with tea lights. Another video showed people chanting and demanding an end to the Israeli occupation, labeling Israel as a terrorist state and shouting “Stop the Genocide” and “Free Palestine.”
The protests were thought to be linked to the Israeli army’s attack on Rafah, which resulted in an influx of people into Berlin protesting against the situation in Gaza and the conflict between Israel and Palestine. The videos posted on social media deemed it a successful protest.
