PARIS — Several thousand protesters calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza are taking part in a pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel march through the rain-dampened streets of Paris, with some shouting “Israel, assassin.”

Demonstrators are also taking aim at French President Emmanuel Macron, chanting “Macron, accomplice.” Some carry placards that read “Immediate ceasefire,” a cry also chanted repeatedly by the crowd. Banners on a sound-system truck at the center of the march read “Stop the massacre in Gaza.”

Demonstrators are also chanting “Palestine will live, Palestine will win,” with many carrying Palestinian flags.

The demonstrators’ planned route runs between two large public squares in eastern Paris, République and Nation. Paris’s police chief has authorized the march but vowed that any behavior deemed antisemitic or sympathetic toward terrorism will not be tolerated by police officers mobilized to keep order.
