Thousands of people marched Sunday in the capital Rabat to commemorate the upcoming Nakba Day, or "the Day of Catastrophe," expressing their unwavering solidarity with the Palestinian people.

The demonstrators voiced their support for the Palestinians' struggle to establish an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital, criticizing the United States' decision to move its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

"This march comes to reiterate the absolute and permanent support of the Moroccan people to their brotherly people of Palestine," Mohamed Benjaloune Al Andaloussi, the director of the Moroccan Association for Solidarity with the Palestinian Struggle, told the press.

They also expressed their solidarity with "the Great March of Return" which has been taking place in the besieged Gaza Strip since March 30, with thousands of Palestinians gathering near the Gaza border with Israel to demand their right of return to the villages and towns from which they were expelled in 1948.
