Giant Palestinian flag unfurled over NYC bridge during protest


Hundreds of protesters flooded the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City on Wednesday, carrying signs and chanting in support of Palestinians as violence continues to rage in Gaza.

As demonstrators marched across the bridge, activists also dropped a huge Palestinian flag from the nearby Manhattan Bridge that read, “Boycott Divestment Sanctions.”

Although it is unknown exactly how many people participated in the event, photographs from the vent on social media clearly indicate that at least several hundred were present. During the last pro-Gaza rally in New York City, somewhere between 2,000 and 3,000 people took part.

The latest demonstration comes as talks between Israelis and Palestinians fell apart yet again on Tuesday, renewing hostilities between the two parties. As RT reported then, 500 rockets were fired at Israel by Hamas, while Israel launched at least 35 airstrikes against various targets in the Gaza Strip.

Both sides have accused each other of breaking the ceasefire that was previously in place.
