Manchester United legend Eric Cantona backs aid campaign for Palestine

Former Manchester United forward Eric Cantona put a photo on social media wearing a ‘Hoping for Palestine’ t-shirt.

French football legend Cantona on Saturday supported a relief campaign launched for Palestinians who are facing Israeli attacks.

At least 139 people have been killed since Israel started attacks on Gaza last Monday.

The 54-year-old shared his photo on Instagram wearing the t-shirt designed for an NGO, Hoping Foundation.

“Hoping is raising funds for Palestinian Medical Relief society’s emergency response in Gaza,” Cantona said.
