Moroccan protesters demand Rabat to cut ties with Israeli regime

Thousands of Moroccan protesters have taken to the streets in the capital Rabat to call on the government for cutting relations with the Israeli regime over the crimes it has committed against the besieged Gaza since October 7.

The demonstration took place on Sunday with about 3,000 participants waving Palestinian flags and chanting, "Palestine is not for sale" and "resistance go ahead to victory and liberation."

The crowds also chanted, "The people want an end to normalization," pressing the Moroccan government to reverse the country's United States-facilitated détente with Israel in 2020.

Starting on October 7, the occupying regime launched a devastating onslaught on Gaza following a surprise operation by the territory's resistance groups, dubbed Operation al-Aqsa Storm.

According to Gaza's Health Ministry, the Israeli aggression has so far killed around 18,000 people and injured nearly 49,000 others.

This is not the first time Moroccans have demonstrated in their thousands to protest Israel's ferocious military aggression against Gaza.

Sunday's march, however, was the first to be called by the opposition Justice and Development Party, which led the Morocco's elected government from 2011 until 2021.

The participants also urged a boycott of those brands that support Israel, while condemning the United States' heavy military and political backing for the regime's genocide in Gaza.

"We call on Morocco to end diplomatic relations with Israel...that [has] killed children and women in Gaza and destroyed hospitals in full brutality," said a protester as he was in line to sign a petition demanding reversal of the rapprochement deal between Rabat and Tel Aviv.
