The Israeli flag was raised on Saturday, October 7, 2023, atop the Austrian Federal Chancellery in Vienna, despite the backdrop of ongoing Israeli attacks on civilians in Gaza.
This action triggered a wave of outrage among activists, who gathered in front of the building to vehemently express their opposition to this controversial move.
The demonstrators criticized the Chancellery for its perceived bias, emphasizing that Austria, as a nation committed to neutrality by its constitution, should have maintained a more impartial stance.
In Gaza, the situation remains highly volatile, with residents enduring a constant state of fear, grappling with the devastating aftermath of Israeli aggression.
According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, the toll of the Israeli offensive has climbed to a grim 232 deaths and left 1,697 individuals wounded, each bearing varying degrees of injury.
