The American city of Chicago witnessed, on Friday, a qualitative event held for the first time, represented by the raising of the Palestinian flag in the city center of the state of Illinois.

Video clips documented the event organized by the “American Muslims for Palestine” group, and the scenes of raising the Palestinian flag in the city, coinciding with the playing of the national anthem, amid a wide participation of the Palestinian community and supporters of Palestine in the city.

The attendees were keen to stand to salute the flag, wearing the distinctive heritage shawl, as well as raising the flags of Palestine and slogans supporting the Palestinian cause.

According to the “American Muslims for Palestine” group, the participants in the event performed Friday prayers before raising the flag.

A number of activists interacted with that historical event, praising those responsible for it, stressing that Palestine will remain despite the occupation.

Abbas Hemeida, an American activist of Palestinian origin, commented in a tweet, “What a beautiful historical moment! at the flag raising ceremony.

The Palestinian writer Maher Al-Yousifi tweeted, “The first event of its kind: raising the flag of Palestine in the city of Chicago today.”
