MADRID: Around 20,000 people marched in Madrid Saturday in support of

and siege since the October 7 attack on Israel by Hamas. Some carried
Palestinian flags and shouted slogans denouncing Israel. Others had banners
thanking South Africa for having brought the case against Israel to the
International Court of Justice (ICJ).
