Groups On Opposite Sides Of Gaza Conflict Rally In Downtown Calgary

CALGARY- Two rallies are being held by both Jewish and Muslim groups on Friday, just one week after emotions spilled over at a similar protest in downtown Calgary.

Pro-Israel and pro-Palestine groups plan to converge around City Hall at 6 p.m., to voice their concerns over the conflict between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

The rallies are being held exactly one week after violence broke out at a march to show solidarity with Palestinans. A handful of Israeli supporters showed up, and a confrontation broke out that saw men begin pushing and shoving, and one person even stomped on an Israeli flag.
