Palestinian solidarity with the people of Syria

These Palestinian children at the Jabaliya Refugee Camp in Gaza hold a solidarity march with the Syrian people. With over 100,000 residents on small acreage, the camp is the largest refugee camp in Palestine & one of the most densely populated places on earth. The First Intifada in 1987 began in Jabaliya which is a frequent target of Israeli bombing.

During the Israeli aerial bombardment of Gaza in Dec. 2008-Jan. 2009, over 40 people in Jabaliya died when Israel bombed a school crowded with hundreds of people seeking refuge from the bombing. Most killed were in the school playground & in the street. These are children who well understand the power of solidarity.  (Photo by Hatem Moussa/AP)
