Anti-Israel demonstrators set up encampment outside Los Angeles City Hall


Anti-Israel protesters established an encampment in front of Los Angeles City Hall Monday night, as similar demonstrations continue in various cities across the U.S., including on college campuses.

More than a dozen tents were seen lining up outside the City Hall building in downtown Los Angeles, California, according to Fox 11. Los Angeles Police Department officers were later seen dismantling some tents.

The protesters were demanding the City Council call for Israel to withdraw from Gaza and for the city to disclose and divest of any financial ties to Israel amid the ongoing war in the Middle East between Hamas terrorists and Israeli forces, which started after Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack on the Jewish State.
