Pro-Palestine Protesters Arrested Outside of White House

Nearly three dozen pro-Palestinian activists were arrested outside of the White House on Monday.

The demonstration occurred after a larger event in Washington on Saturday protesting Israel's response to terrorist attacks from Hamas.

"We need a cease-fire. We need innocent people to stop being killed," Mohamad Habehh, the director of development for the American Muslims for Palestine told Fox News.

"It seems that the Biden administration would rather condemn people calling for peace than try to step in," he continued.

"Those who were arrested are accused of unlawful entry or incommoding and were transferred to the local police for processing, a Secret Service spokesperson said," ABC News reported.

"The agency doesn't typically identify arrestees and didn't name those taken into custody on Monday. Washington police did not immediately respond to questions about the arrests," it added.

The protests also followed the terrorist group Hamas calling for a day of violence on Friday, leading to heightened security in many locations.

One person was stabbed in Beijing in an uprising, while a bomb threat in France occurred and thousands demonstrated on the streets of London.

The demonstrations want Israel to stop its plans to retaliate against Hamas, a terrorist group in the Gaza Strip that killed more than 1,300 Israelis in terror attacks and shot thousands of rockets at civilians in Israel.

The demonstrations may continue but so far have not led to a change in support for Israel in its efforts to stop Hamas.
