Global Tensions Flare as Israel/Gaza Conflict Intensifies
- sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer
As the conflict between Israel and Gaza intensifies – supporters of both sides amass around the world to show their support. Tonight in Washington, DC, hundreds of people met at the White House to ask President Obama for a solution to the conflict.
A group of more than 200 Israel supporters arrived first – met by a group of more than 300 Gaza supporters. The groups were separated by dozens of Uniformed Secret Service and police as the two groups shouted arguments at one another. Claims of genocide, occupation, murder, terror, and of course blame were exchanged.
Halfway around the world, the rockets of Hamas militants continue to fall on residential areas of Southern Israel and south of Tel Aviv, while the missiles of Israeli aircrafts are being used to strategically eliminate Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip.
