In a show of solidarity with the people of Gaza, protesters gathered at Delhi's historic Jantar Mantar to denounce Israel's actions against Hamas. At least 50 demonstrators were detained by the police during this protest on Monday. The protest was organized by various organizations, including the leftist All India Students' Association, who came together to express their concerns over the ongoing conflict.

The protest saw over 100 individuals congregating at Jantar Mantar, a well-known hub for demonstrations and protests in the heart of Delhi. Their primary aim was to voice their dissent against Israel's military actions in the Gaza Strip. While the intentions behind the gathering were peaceful and aimed at highlighting a humanitarian issue, the protesters did not have the necessary permission to assemble, leading to their detainment by law enforcement.

As news of the unrest continues to dominate headlines, people worldwide are expressing their opinions and demanding a peaceful resolution to the crisis.
