KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysians came together today in solidarity with the people of Palestine against the Israeli forces' atrocities at the 'Freedom For Palestine' gathering at Dataran Merdeka today.

Humanitarian Care Malaysia (MyCare) Board of Trustees member Dr Fauziah Mohd Hasan said many of the participants at the gathering comprised individuals from diverse ethnicities, nationalities and religions.

"What happened today is insignificant compared to what our brothers and sisters in Gaza have endured," she told Sinar Harian today.

She expressed hope that the act of 'genocide' against the Palestinian people would stop and that sufficient humanitarian aid would be continuously sent to the country.

"I understand that after 20 trucks passed through the Rafah crossing, they closed the border," she said.

She said Viva Palestina Malaysia and MyCare extended gratitude for the support and presence of the participants.

"We also want to apologise if there were any mistakes or disturbances that occurred.

“We need to maintain peace of the assembly to ensure that humanitarian aid efforts are not disrupted," she added.

Commenting further, Fauziah added that the ban on participants displaying provocative banners was issued by the authorities.

"The authorities instructed that participants should not display provocative posters," she said.

Fauziah said the organisers, along with the participants shouted 'Allahuakbar’ on the stage at the end of the peaceful gathering.

"Takbir Allahuakbar resounded after former Permatang Pauh MP Nurul Izzah Anwar delivered her speech at the end of the assembly," she said.
