First Minister Humza Yousaf, whose parents-in-law escaped from Gaza last week, has backed the right of protesters to hold events on Armistice Day despite UK Government claims it was ‘provocative and disrespectful’.
In Scotland there have been protest marches over the last four weekends. Five people were also arrested after a group occupied the roof of the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh last week.
The Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign led protests in Edinburgh on Saturday afternoon, as well as marches in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Forres, and Dundee.
Protests began in the UK on 14 October, one week after Hamas launched an attack in Israel that killed 1,400 people and saw 229 held as hostages. Since then, the Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza says more than 10,800 Palestinians have been killed.
Here are nine powerful images taken of protesters in the Capital.
Prince George, 10, joined the Prince and Princess of Wales at the annual Together At Christmas concert last week - though royal fans have noticed a particularly heartwarming moment when the future king tried to hold his mother's hand.
In a YouGov study, three in 10 people in the UK report being sexually inactive, with almost a fifth of people aged 40 to 44 not having sex. By the age of 74, this figure jumps to 57 per cent. While it’s often difficult to get an entirely accurate picture of people’s intimate lives, one survey suggests that over a quarter of relationships are sexless.
The gulf between Israel and the US on one hand - and Arab states and much of the rest of the world on the other - couldn't really be greater. With the US diplomatic backing, and with more of its ammunition supplies being shipped to Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made it clear that to achieve his goals of rescuing hostages - but more importantly, in reality, the destruction of Hamas - then a ceasefire is a non-starter. Despite their admirable work, in truth they won't get very far for the time being because neither of the protagonists - Hamas and Israel - seem awfully interested in a ceasefire anyway.
