NEW YORK, August 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Protesters against the Israeli operation in Gaza hung a huge state flag of Palestine in the center of New York on Wednesday. The flag was suspended to the Manhattan Bridge across the East River. The huge flag colored black, white, green and red had stayed on the bridge for approximately half an hour before it was removed by the New York police.
Earlier on Wednesday, several hundred demonstrators took part in a march organized in protest against the operation conducted by the Israeli forces in Gaza.
Several protest actions against the military operation in Gaza have been held in New York in recent weeks. A demonstration staged near Times Square in the end of July drew the biggest number of participants estimated at around 2,500. The protesters, who carried Palestinian flags, called on the US administration to stop assisting Israel.
A total of 2,040 Palestinian citizens have been killed in Gaza since Israel began its military operation on July 8. Israel has reported 64 servicemen dead.
A new spiral of armed confrontation might again trigger a full-scale war, observers warned.
