After the announcement of the broadcast of an interview with Netanyahu, major demonstration in front of TF1

While Israel launched an offensive on Rafah, in the Gaza Strip, a few days ago, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave an interview to LCI. A media coverage denounced by left-wing elected officials and associations.

After several major demonstrations in support of the Palestinian people, more than 2,500 people gathered again in front of the TF1 headquarters in Boulogne-Billancourt. This time to protest against the broadcast, on LCI, of an interview with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The latter repeated the official position vis-à-vis the Israeli military operation in Gaza, in particular that “the number of civilian casualties relative to the losses of [Palestinian] fighters is the lowest rate we have seen in urban warfare”. He also called accusations against Israel of targeting civilians or starving them “anti-Semitic slander.”

The interview, conducted remotely, comes just days after the deadly bombing of a camp for displaced people in Rafah, which triggered a wave of international outrage, including among supporters of the Jewish state. In this overcrowded city, where many Palestinians have come to take refuge, the Israeli army has continued its strikes and its ground offensive launched on 7 May. The reason given by Israel is always the same: to eliminate the last battalions of Hamas.

Soon after the announcement of this interview, a call for protest was launched. Carrying keffiyehs and Palestinian flags, the demonstrators, the first of whom arrived before 7 p.m. near the tower where TF1 and LCI are located, came in three processions, an AFP journalist noted. Some of them blocked the George Pompidou expressway.
