Against all obstacles: Pink Floyd's Uruguay concert shines spotlight on Gaza

British musician Roger Waters, the lead singer of Pink Floyd, whose concert was tried to be canceled by Israel supporters, gave a concert in Uruguay despite all the obstacles.

Waters, who appeared on the stage with a keffiyeh around his neck, called for "Stop the genocide in Palestine"; images of the massacre in Gaza were projected on the giant screen.

The famous singer had also unfurled the Palestinian flag in his previous concerts and expressed his support for the Gazans.

WHAT HAPPENED

Hamas' military wing, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, announced that they launched a comprehensive attack against Israel called "Al-Aqsa Flood" on the morning of Oct. 7.

While thousands of rockets were fired from Gaza towards Israel, armed groups entered the settlements in the region. The Israeli army also launched an attack on the Gaza Strip with dozens of warplanes. The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza announced that Israel killed 13,000 people, including 5,000 children, and 3,500 women. It injured at least 32,000 people in its attacks on Gaza.

The administration said the number of missing persons crossed 6,000, with most of them suspected of lying under the rubble of the fallen buildings.

It was reported that 1,400 Israelis, including 324 soldiers, were killed and 5,132 Israelis were wounded in the attacks from Gaza.

The Israeli army hit Damascus and Aleppo airports. As the Middle East is once again turning into a bloodbath, a deadline has been set for nearly 2.5 million Palestinians to leave the blockaded Gaza.

In Israel’s attacks on Gaza, 52 journalists were killed.

In the clashes between the Israeli army and Hezbollah on the Israel-Lebanon border since Oct. 8, 55 Hezbollah members and 4 civilians, one of whom was a journalist, were killed. Three Israeli soldiers and one Israeli civilian were killed in the attacks organized by Lebanon.

Most recently, Israel attacked the Jabalia Refugee Camp in Gaza, killing civilians.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that he was breaking off all contact with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu because of Israeli attacks on civilians in the Gaza Strip.
