Leaders of a Muslim group reported to the junta after organizing a gathering calling for peace in Gaza in front of the Israeli Embassy. 
Satienpab Suksamran and Somchai Saisawad, leaders of the Al Quds International Council of Thailand, on Sunday reported to the junta’s National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) at the Thai Army Club, the Thai National Broadcasting reported on Thursday.  
Satienpab said he clarified to the NCPO that the activity, organized by Al Quds, was aimed at denouncing the violence against Muslims in Palestine. The same activity was held across the world and the activity had nothing to do with Thai politics, he added.
On 25 July, Satienpab led a group of protesters on a walk from the Islamic Bank of Thailand in Bangkok’s Klong Ton district to the Israeli Embassy in Pathumwan district.
