KUALA LUMPUR: Some 40 members from the Gerakan Belia 4B Malaysia marched to the US Embassy on Monday and submitted a memorandum of protest against the Israeli attacks in Gaza.
An embassy representative accepted the memorandum on behalf of the US Government from the movement’s Federal Territory branch chairman Mohd Azhari Naharuddin.
“We appeal to the US Government, which claims it is the marshal of the world, to intervene and use its power to stop Israel from attacking Palestine,” he told reporters when met at the embassy here.
“We are very concerned about the strikes in Gaza which has led to over 500 deaths, including that of Palestinian children. We hope that this war will stop,” Mohd Azhari added.
The group marched from Bangunan Tabung Haji, carrying banners and calling for a ceasefire, but were stopped by a 44-strong team of light strike force unit members and police officers.
Mohd Azhari was then allowed to hand over the memorandum while accompanied by a few members.
