Pro-Palestinian demonstrators shake a giant flag and chant anti Israeli slogans as they walk past the statue of Republic, in Paris, Sunday July 13, 2014, to protest against Israeli army bombings in the Gaza strip. About 10,000 pro-Palestinian protesters marched through eastern Paris on Sunday demanding an end to Israeli strikes on Gaza, and accusing Western leaders of not doing enough to stop them. Israel has launched more than 1,300 air strikes since the offensive began, military spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said Sunday. Palestinian militants have launched more than 800 rockets at Israel, including 130 in the last 24 hours, the Israeli military said Sunday. (AP Photo/Remy de la Mauviniere)
