Several days prior to the Global March to Jerusalem, thousands of Moroccans took part in a mass rally in Rabat “in support of Jerusalem.” Israeli diplomat David Saranga, who was in the city for a conference, was taken out of the building through a side door as demonstrators protested his presence there, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Monday. Palestinian flags were flown and Israeli flags were burned during the march.
A Moroccan Islamic organization that organized the march claimed that 100,000 participated in the rally.
“The people want to free al-Aqsa,” the protesters chanted. “A million martyrs are going to Jerusalem.”
