BAGHDAD (Reuters) -- Chanting crowds gathered in several Iraqi cities on Saturday, some burning Israeli and American flags, in protest against the Israeli bombardment of the Gaza Strip.
Thousands of demonstrators shouted anti-Israeli slogans, held signs saying "Death to Israel, death to America” and waved Palestinian flags. The rallies, called by powerful  cleric Moqtada al-Sadr and other paramilitary leaders, were held as Israel launched more airstrikes on Gaza and Palestinian militants fired rockets on Tel Aviv and other cities in the worst escalation in the region since 2014.
