More than 1,200 people were killed in the attacks, with others taken hostage.

According to the Hamas-run health ministry on January 9, at least 23,210 people have been killed and over 59,100 wounded during Israel's military operation.

The protests in London have been met with both support and criticism since they began last October, with the Met Police making several arrests over alleged hate crimes.

It will take place as MPs vote on a bill at its third reading. The bill would see UK public bodies banned from imposing their own boycott or divestment campaigns against foreign countries and territories.

The rally will take place from 5pm to 7pm on Wednesday.

Why are people protesting?

Protests are taking place across the world demanding a permanent ceasefire and an end to Israel's military blockade of Gaza.

In recent weeks, there have been separate demonstrations calling for the return of Israeli hostages that Hamas kidnapped during its violent raid.
