Dozens of demonstrators gathered in Mexico City on Saturday to show their support for the Palestinians.

The protest follows days of Israeli airstrikes on Gaza, and Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel.

One of the demonstrators called for an end to the clashes and for the establishment of a Palestinian state.

Some painted a large Palestinian flag on the square where the demonstration was held.

The protest took place on the 73th anniversary of what Palestinians call the Nakba, or Catastrophe, commemorating the Palestinians who were expelled or fled their homes during the war that led to Israel's creation in 1948.
