Anti-Israel protest outside of the Israeli Consulate in Los Angeles [VIDEO]



Anti-Israel protesters gather outside the Israeli Consulate of Los Angeles in support of Gaza.

On Nov. 15, at approximately 4:30 p.m., more than 100 people took to the streets in West Los Angeles to express their solidarity with Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. The protest was a response to the escalation of recent attacks between the Palestinian militant Hamas group and the Israeli military.

A small group of pro-Israel protestors gathered across the street, on the northwest corner of Wilshire boulevard and Granville avenue, to express support for Israel.

Meanwhile, consul general of Israel in Los Angeles David Siegel denounced Hamas’ attacks on Israel and said Israel must defend itself. “We’re in a situation that is becoming more and more untenable,” he said.
