PEOPLE have taken to the streets of Bradford this evening to protest against violence in Palestine.

Protesters bearing the Palestinian flag and holding banners which read "Free Palestine" and "Stop Israel's war crimes in Gaza" were in City Park today.

Thousands of people marched through London on Saturday to the gates of the Israeli embassy, while protests took place in other cities across the UK and Ireland in solidarity with the people of Palestine.

Thousands of Palestinians have been forced to flee their homes after a week of sustained conflict.

Since last Monday night, the Palestinian militant group Hamas has fired hundreds of rockets into Israel and the Israeli military has barraged the Gaza Strip with tank fire and air strikes.
