Rallies in support of both sides of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict were held in the center of Washington, a Sputnik correspondent reported.
Both protests involved at least several hundred people: the pro-Israel one took place near the White House (Freedom Plaza), the pro-Palestinian one took place near the Washington Post building. The police did not interfere.
Pro-Palestinian rallies took place not only in the US capital. Similar events were held in Chicago, New York and Portland.
