The State of Israel was protested by its own citizens on Tuesday after hordes of Palestinians protesting the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem were killed by live bullets by the Israeli military forces. The demonstrators were out on the street chanting “We don’t need another war,” “This is not a solution,” “End the Occupation,” “The Arabs and The Jews Must Stop Being Enemies,” “In Solidarity with Gaza.” The leftist protestors took the center stage during the rally shouting “Gaze Don’t Despair. We Will End the Occupation.” There were also people writing the names of the Palestinians that died on the city walls and streets.
