Students, faculty members, and employees at the University of Tripoli organized a demonstration in support of the Gaza Strip, which has been subjected to an Israeli war of genocide since October 7, in which 34,789 people were killed, the majority of whom were women and children, and 78,204 were injured, in addition to thousands of missing people.

The demonstrators raised Palestinian flags, placed keffiyehs, and chanted slogans in support of Palestinian rights and condemned the Israeli occupation. They reaffirmed, in a final statement read by one of the students, their standing with the resistance as an effective way to defeat the aggression and remove the Zionist occupation from the land of Palestine, and the necessity of supporting the people and children of Gaza with everything necessary in order to strengthen steadfastness against aggression.

The demonstrators called for addressing the European countries that support the occupying entity to stop their unlimited support for the unjustified aggression on Palestinian land and to stop double standards. They called on the United Nations to play its role in maintaining international peace and implementing its decisions in favor of the Palestinian Cause.

The statement stressed that the student movement in support of Gaza has not stopped and will never stop, saying: “The Palestinian issue is a cause. We are part of them and they are part of us.”

Student demonstrations and sit-ins spread around the world in support of Gaza and in protest against the continuation of the genocidal war on the Palestinian Strip. They included universities in the United States, Britain, and France, the largest supporters of the occupation, and also reached the Netherlands, Switzerland, Australia, Mexico, Iraq, Tunisia, and Lebanon.
