A man has been fined for throwing a firework during a pro-Palestinian march in London.

A penalty notice for disorder (PND) was issued to a 20-year-old man from Waltham Forest for throwing a firework at the event on Saturday (October 14).

It comes after tens of thousands of people gathered for pro-Palestinian demonstrations across the UK amid growing international concern over the situation in Israel and Gaza.

Police said that in total 15 people were arrested during the protest in central London, and that three were charged with criminal offences.

Ibrahim Hlaiyil, 38, of Littleton Road, North Wembley, was charged with failing to comply with a requirement to remove a face covering.

The Met Police had said before the march that certain areas of the capital would be covered by a legal power requiring a person to remove items such as scarves and masks that might be used to conceal their identity.

Hlaiyil is now set to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on November 13.

Another man attending the demonstration in central London – Aldib Nour, 20, of St George’s Circus in Elephant and Castle -  was arrested in King Charles Street.

He was subsequently charged with possession of a knife in a public place and bailed to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on November 2.

Three youths have also been referred to youth offending teams.

These referrals were for – assaulting an emergency worker, possession of a firework in a public place and failing to comply with a requirement to remove a face covering.

Police have said that enquiries continue with respect to four men who have been bailed, three of whom were arrested on suspicion of assaulting an emergency worker and the fourth for threatening behaviour.

A man arrested on suspicion of criminal damage to a police vehicle has been released under investigation.

Three of those arrested have been released without further action.

A police spokesperson said: “We continue to review footage and material.

“Where there is evidence of criminal offences having been committed, we will work to identify and arrest those responsible.”

They added: “There is no place for hate in London and we will use the law to ensure anyone who engages in such behaviour is held to account.”
