People in several cities across the globe have staged protest rallies against Israeli aggression, as the Tel Aviv regime wages a new wave of attacks against Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip.

On Friday, people held demonstrations in Morocco, Jordan, Turkey, Egypt, Lebanon, Yemen, Tunisia, Indonesia, the United States, France and the United Kingdom.

In Morocco, protesters held placards and Palestinian flags as they shouted slogans during a demonstration in Rabat in support for the nation of Palestine.

In the Jordanian capital Amman, crowds of protesters also chanted slogans against the Israeli attrocities.

In the Turkish capital of Ankara meanwhile, demonstrators staged a rally outside the Israeli embassy.

A mass demonstration was further held in the Indonesian capital Jakarta where the protesters voiced their anger at the Tel Aviv regime by defacing a portrait of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Egyptians also slammed the bombardment of Gaza at a protest rally in Cairo.

In the United States, a number of peace groups gathered in front of the Israeli embassy in Washington DC to protest the regime's deadly attacks on the impoverished Gaza Strip and calling for an end to Tel Aviv's persisting onslaught against the coastal sliver.

This is while more than 100 people, including women and children, have been killed in the latest round of Israeli offensive against the besieged enclave since Tuesday.

In the previous Israeli onslaught aginst Gaza, over 160 Palestinians were killed and nearly1,200 others were injured in an eight-day military aggression on the densely populated enclave that ended on November 21, 2012.
