Dr. Sheikh Ramzy, the Vice Chairman of AIDO board and Director of Oxford University, also a strong pillar of AIDO Ubuntu and human rights advocacy has championed a rally calling for peace for palistine and cease fire in Gaza.
The rally was embraced by over a thousand people all chanting cease fire now in the spirit of Ubuntu!
This came after the Palestinian militant group Hamas launched an unprecedented assault on Israel on the 7th of October, with hundreds of gunmen infiltrating communities near the Gaza Strip.
More than 1,400 Israelis were killed, while the Israeli military says 230 soldiers and civilians, including women and children, were taken to Gaza as hostages.
More than 8,000 Palestinians in Gaza have been killed in air and artillery strikes carried out by the Israeli military in response, according to the Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza.
Amidst the chaos, Dr. Sheikh Ramzy has launched a rally calling for peace between Palestine and Gaza while advocating for food and medicine for Gaza.
“God bless all, we AIDOers will never give up until Palestine is free” Sheikh Ramzy said.
The history of the Israeli–Palestinian conflict traces back to the late 19th century when Zionists sought to establish a homeland for the Jewish people in Ottoman-controlled Palestine, a region roughly corresponding to the Land of Israel in Jewish tradition.
