About 100 Israelis gather in Independence Park in downtown Jerusalem to rally in solidarity with Iranian women who have been leading anti-government protests for weeks.

“We’re not against the people of Iran, we’re against the regime of Iran — which kills women and denies them freedom,” says Jerusalem Deputy Mayor Fleur Hassan-Nahoum, one of the rally organizers.

“We are dreaming of the day when Iran can join its neighbors in the Abraham Accords and make peace with Israel.”

Holding signs in Hebrew, English and Farsi, the protesters include many Israelis of Persian descent. The crowd chants “Women. Life. Freedom.”
