PARIS, FRANCE - MAY 15: A Pro-Palestine Protestor gets hit by police water canon as police try to break up a demonstration in solidarity with Palestine, after the recent Israeli attacks on Gaza. France’s Interior Minister, Gerald Darmanin, had asked police to ban the pro-Palestinian protest. Several Israeli cities have experienced clashes between Jewish and Arab mobs in previous days, following days of cross-border fighting between militants in the Gaza Strip, who have fired hundreds of rockets into Israel, and Israeli airstrikes that have killed dozens across the Palestinian coastal enclave.
