Hundreds of people gathered in the Ein al Helweh Palestinian refugee camp in the Lebanese city of Sidon on Friday to show solidarity for the people in Gaza.

Ein el Helweh, located in south Lebanon, is the largest Palestinian refugee camp in the country.

The demonstration organized after the Friday prayers saw hundreds of people marching around the city with Palestinian flags and chanting slogans.

Some protesters called for more demonstrations by Arab students around the world like the campus protests taking place in U.S. universities.

“We salute all the students in the American universities and we say to all the students in Arab countries to be up to the responsibility and follow the lead of the students of western universities,” said Jihad Mouwad, a Palestinian activist.

Ceasefire talks between Hamas and Israel are at a tense point following Israel’s incursion into the Rafah and seizure of the key border crossing from Gaza to Egypt.
