Join the vigil protesting Israel’s air raid on Gaza which has led to the death of fifteen people so far including young children.


Israel has launched an attack on Gaza firing missiles into one of the most densely populated areas in the world. There are twenty confirmed dead so far including two children, with the death toll expected to rise considerably as Israeli forces are currently mobilising on the border for a possible invasion. Rinan Arafat a seven-year-old girl was just one of the children killed in the attack.   

IHRC is calling for a vigil outside the Israeli embassy to condemn these murderous actions. The international community need to condemn this act of aggression and call for a halt in Israel’s murderous actions. This is a continuation of acts of aggression against Gaza and Israel is now attempting to escalate the situation.  

IHRC has called on activists and campaigners to attend the peaceful vigil outside the Israeli embassy.

Date: Friday 16th November (Today)

Time: 14:00 – 16:30 GMT

Location: Outside the Israeli embassy. 2 Palace Green Gardens, W8 4QB
 
Nearest Tube Station: High Street Kensington
