Hundreds of people from the Palestinian community in Bogotá on Friday protested outside the Israeli embassy against Israel's bombardment of the Gaza Strip.
The protest came at a time when the Colombian government condemned, in a statement, the Israeli airstrikes on Gaza and expressed its solidarity with the Palestinian people.
Israel launched airstrikes on Gaza last Saturday, a move it said to retaliate for the firing of rockets into its southern territory by Hamas militias.
The ongoing military operation has left at least 432 people killed and some 2,200 wounded, Mo'aweya Hassanein, chief of emergency and ambulance services in the Palestinian health ministry said. (Xinhua)
