STORYLINE:
Protesters took to the streets of Karachi in Pakistan on Friday to demonstrate against the US, Israel and Sweden and in support of the Palestinians.

During the rally, supporters of the Tehreek-e-Labaik Pakistan party, who took part in the demonstration, set alight to Israeli, American and Swedish flags.

The Swedish flag was included in the burning due to recent incidents of the Quran being publicly burnt in the European country.

“Tehreek-e-Labaik Pakistan is giving a clear message that we were and are against the oppression of Palestinians by Israel and if we get the opportunity to fight it by going there, we will fight,” Mohammad Ijaz Raza, a Tehreek-e-Labaik Pakistan supporter said.
