KUWAIT CITY, May 15 (Xinhua) -- Hundreds of protesters participated in a solidarity drive on Saturday in Kuwait to show support for the Palestinians.

The protesters gathered in their cars against Israel's decision to evict Palestinian families from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in East Jerusalem, as well as Israel's ongoing bombing raids in Gaza.

Gathering in seaside streets for more than an hour and chanting "end the Israel occupation now," they expressed their hope for an end to the ongoing violence and reiterated their support for the two-state solution to end the decades-long conflicts between Israel and Palestine.

Kuwaiti citizen Abdullah Al-Asqbai said that the de-escalation and protection of civilians are a necessary and basic requirement to end the suffering of the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

A Palestinian protester Abeer Salameh said she will continue to support the Palestinian cause, calling for saving lives instead of living in war.

"We gathered today to support our Palestinian brothers, and we will stand together for the Palestinian cause. It is time to stand by each other hand in hand," a resident named Mustafa Ahmed said.
