Renewed demonstrations in support of Palestine in the British capital London on Saturday to demand an end to the Israeli aggression on Gaza, which has so far led to the death of about 15,<> martyrs, most of them women and children.

On Friday, a temporary truce began in Gaza, but British demonstrators demanded on Saturday a permanent ceasefire, a cessation of genocide and an end to the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories.

Since the beginning of the Israeli aggression on Gaza, the British have continued to show support for the Palestinian people, despite the government's pro-Israel stance.

Lindsay German, an anti-war activist, said: "We want a permanent ceasefire that can then lead to a political solution. "We are very far from that and our government has to do more to ensure that happens."

Open the crossing

On Friday, dozens of demonstrators gathered in front of Egypt's embassy in the British capital, London, to demand that the Rafah crossing remain open for the delivery of aid to Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

Protesters held signs reading "Allow aid to enter the Rafah crossing," "Open the crossing."

The demonstrators chanted slogans in Arabic and English in solidarity with the Palestinians and to demand a permanent ceasefire in Gaza.

London police have warned they will arrest any demonstrators who exhibit racist behaviour amid expectations that thousands of protesters will march in support of Palestinians.

Police announced on Friday that they would deploy more than 1500,<> security personnel to control Saturday's demonstrations.

More than 120 demonstrators were arrested during a march earlier this month, when skirmishes broke out between police and far-right groups that gathered to protest a pro-Palestine demonstration.
