Israel Arrests 6 in Tel Aviv Protesting Gaza Operation

Six protesters were arrested Monday at an unauthorized demonstration against Israel's aerial campaign in the Gaza Strip, held outside the Egyptian Embassy in Tel Aviv.

The protesters, suspected of disturbing the peace, waved Palestinian Liberation Organization flags as they condemned Israel. Police forces that arrived asked the protesters to lower the flags and clear the area. Upon their refusal, police dispersed the protesters forcefully and arrested six of them.
