New York City police pushed back participants in a pro-Palestine rally in Times Square on Thursday after a near-collision occurred between them and participants in a pro-Israel rally.
In the evening, two rallies were held simultaneously in Times Square – supporters of Palestine and supporters of Israel. Several dozen people attended them. The police arrived at the place to ensure order. At some point, the slogans turned into mutual insults, the parties began to throw plastic bottles at each other. The police moved into action, forming a chain and pushing the Palestinians to the other end of the square. At least one person was detained.
Earlier on Friday, at 02: 00 Palestinian and Israeli time (coincides with Moscow time), a ceasefire between Israel and Palestinian groups in the Gaza Strip came into force.
