Pro-Palestinian Protesters Gather in New York Amid Jerusalem Flag March

Pro-Palestinian protesters marched through Manhattan on June 15 amid a controversial Israeli “flag march” in East Jerusalem.

According to the Palestinian Red Crescent, at least 33 Palestinian protesters were injured amid clashes in Jerusalem.

The Israel Defense Forces said they carried out strikes against “Hamas compounds” in Gaza on the night of June 15-16, in response to incendiary balloons that were released from the Strip, causing fires.
