New Gaza conflict murals appear in Belfast

A child was killed by an Israeli air strike today – just minutes into an Israeli-declared truce.

NEW MURALS HAVE appeared in Belfast as Loyalist and Republican groups take rival positions of support for Israel and Palestine.

The first Belfast mural about the Gaza conflict was painted on the Falls Road last week.

It called for the “immediate expulsion of all Israeli diplomats from Éire”.
