Supports of both Israel and Palestine clashed on the streets of New York City Tuesday, following violent attacks in the Middle East this week, APA reports quoting Fox News.
New York police officers attempted to keep the groups separated, but videos posted to social media showed protestors breaking free in an attempt to physically assault one another.
Both the pro-Israel and pro-Palestine groups were relatively small, but their shouts and repeated attempts to attack one another drew a crowd in front of the Israeli consulate in Manhattan.
A much larger group of pro-Palestinian supporters marched through New York City, carrying banners condemning Israeli actions.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio could not be immediately reached by Fox News for comment.
