Protest in Fresno over Gaza Violence

January 9, 2009 10:33:11 PM PST
A protest over the violence in the Middle East got heated in North Fresno. Hundreds gathered at the intersection of Shaw and Blackstone. Most of the protestors are opposed to the ongoing bombing of Hamas targets along the Gaza strip by the Israeli military. Some say Palestinian militants are responsible for the escalation, after they fired rockets into Israel.

Although tensions rose between the two groups at the rally, most were there to protest in peace.

The protest lasted several hours. There was some shoving between the groups, but there were no reports of any arrests.
