Palestinians took to the streets in spontaneous marches in the West Bank, facing Israeli occupation forces in Jerusalem and various cities and camps. Violent confrontations resulted in injuries from live bullets and tear gas inhalation.

Tehran resonated with calls for the Iranian government to take a decisive stand against Israeli aggression, while Ankara witnessed demonstrators storming the Israeli embassy and consulate in Istanbul. The demand to "support Al-Aqsa and expel the Zionists" echoed through the streets.
