SINGAPORE - More than 300 people gathered at Hong Lim Park on Saturday afternoon to show their solidarity with the people of Gaza.

They were of different ethnicities and nationalities and arrived with their family and friends. Many wore red, green, black and white - the colours of the Palestine flag - and some also had Palestinian scarves draped around their necks.

The event was organized by From Singapore to Palestine (FS2P) - an independent group set up in 2012 to create awareness here about the situation in Palestine.

Since the outbreak of the latest round of hostilities with Israel on July 8, the death toll in Gaza has risen to more than 800, including many civilians.
