In the ongoing Israeli air raids targeting Gaza for over a period of 10 days, the toll in terms of Palestinian casualties has climbed to over three thousand, with thousands more sustaining injuries. This grim situation has deeply affected the Muslim world, particularly as they grieve the tragic strike on Gaza Hospital and other residential areas.
Gaza has witnessed heart-wrenching scenes, where locations once bustling with eateries, residential buildings, and villas have been subjected to relentless bombardments, leaving behind a landscape of devastation, rubble, and flattened structures.
Following the devastating Israeli strike that claimed the lives of more than 500 individuals at a Gaza hospital, Pakistani cricketers have come forward to show their support for the war-torn nation. Various current members of Team Pakistan and former cricketers have used social media as a platform to express their solidarity with the Palestinian cause, sharing the flag of the Western Asian nation.
Notable cricketers who have joined in solidarity with the people of Gaza include Azhar Ali, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Iftikhar Ahmed, and Usama Mir, all of whom expressed their earnest hopes for peace in the region.
