‘Taking the streets’: Palestine group marches in Bay Ridge following countryside killings


A local grassroots organization rallied in Bay Ridge in response to demonstrate against the Israeli military raid that left nine Palestinians dead late last month.

Within our Lifetime (WOL) held the rally last week after the devastation in the Jenin region of Palestine, which the Palestinian government labeled a “massacre,” and led the nation to cut off the already-flimsy security ties with Israel. 

The Israeli government claims the violence began during a raid on Islamic Jihad “terror operatives.” The situation led to Israeli soldiers killing seven gunmen and two civilians, including a 61-year-old woman in the occupied West Bank.
