On Saturday, supporters of Palestine staged a demonstration outside the White House amid the Israeli attacks in Gaza. People were seen wearing Hamas headbands and waving Palestinian flags. Amidst the protest, one person was observed wearing a mask of President Biden, which appeared to be made of iron.

Opposition from the protesters was evident as they even set fire to the American flag. Many banners and posters were also held by the crowd. Allegations of Biden’s biased stance in the ongoing conflict were vocalized. Demonstrators shouted slogans in support of a free Palestine, expressing concern for the children in Gaza who continue to suffer due to bombings.

Additionally, protesters targeted the National Park Service Rangers by hurling objects at them. This escalated into vandalism of established monuments. They demanded an end to American support for Israel. In response, security was heightened around the White House to contain the opposition.
