CAMPAIGNERS have unrolled a harrowing list which they say shows all the names of those who have been  killed in Gaza - but it has yet to be completed because it is so long.

The list giving hundreds of names of Palestinians and their ages – including many children - was placed outside the Scottish Parliament as protests took place ahead of a debate by MSPs on calling for a ceasefire in Gaza.

It was compiled as part of an ongoing project by the Edinburgh University Justice for Palestine Society.

The Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign write on Twitter/X that it was a “very moving initiative,” adding that there were “many more still under the rubble and as yet unnamed”.

As of last Monday the health ministry in Gaza said 11,240 people had been killed, including 4630 children, since the Hamas attacks on Israel on 7 October.

Israel has said the death toll from those attacks is standing at around 1200.

Meanwhile Scotland’s First Minister has called on the Prime Minister to recognise the state of Palestine.

In a letter to Rishi Sunak on Tuesday ahead of the debate on a ceasefire in the region in Holyrood, Humza Yousaf has pushed for the UK Government to recognise Palestine within the borders set out in 1967, claiming it would help to end the “political impasse that has condemned Israelis and the Palestinians to successive cycles of violence”.

A similar letter was also sent to Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer (below), urging him to back the calls.

“It is essential and urgent that the UK makes clear to the Israeli government, and to the world, that in line with support for a two-state solution, only Palestinians can have authority in Gaza,” he wrote to the Prime Minister.

“Of course, that authority must be exercised in a way that ensures the people of Israel, as well as Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank, are able to live in peace and security.

“The UK needs to work with the international community to break, once and for all, the political impasse that has condemned Israelis and the Palestinians to successive cycles of violence.”

He also added that the UK Government should also consider referring both Hamas and Israel to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for investigation of any potential war crimes.
