The Israeli onslaught on the Palestinian territory of Gaza began on October 7 when Hamas launched a military offensive that killed 1000s in Israel, including many civilians.
Israel subsequently declared a state of war and has since been bombing Gaza.
“We are very pleased with such a show of support in these devastating times.”
Some Ghanaians, however, criticised the preacher because of Israel's role as an aggressor with bombings in the wake of the terror attack.
They felt the preacher needed to support Palestine, which has been faced with a humanitarian crisis following the bombings from Israel.
