Ibdaa Cultural Center

Children of Dheisheh refugee camp demonstrate against Israeli assault

Over two hundred children from Ibdaa Cultural Center in Dheisheh refugee camp took to the streets this afternoon protesting against Israel’s barbaric attacks and the United States’ unwavering support for Israeli aggression. The children carried a child’s coffin, photos of yesterday’s massacre in Qana, and Palestinian, Lebanese, and Iraqi flags. While marching through the narrow roads of the camp for half an hour, they chanted “Beirut hura, hura. America itla barra.” (Beirut free, free. America go out.) and “Min Gaza l’Beirut, shab moqawim lan ya moot.” (From Gaza to Beirut, the resistance will not die.)
