Hundreds of pro-Palestinian protestors rally outside U.S. Sen Gillibrand’s office, scores arrested

The inclement weather did not stop hundreds of pro-Palestinian protestors from marching to the office of U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand on Friday, calling on Congress to put pressure on Israel for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza and to allow humanitarian aid to enter the battered region.

Protestors say Israel’s continued air strikes on Gaza in response to the Hamas terror attack on Oct. 7 has killed too many innocent civilians in Gaza. The Hamas attacks left 1,400 Israelis dead, with 200 more kidnapped. To date, 4,000 people in Gaza have been killed.
