Police step in after ‘free Palestine’ supporters approach pro-Israel protesters

Police officers were forced to step in after a small group of people chanting “free Palestine” approached a gathering of pro-Israel protesters in London.

The large crowd, which congregated in Kensington High Street on Sunday afternoon, waved Israeli flags and banners and chanted loudly, while a number of speeches were made.

A large police presence was in the area and a number of surrounding roads were closed off.

Placards bearing the messages “Free Gaza From Hamas” and “Israel has the right to defend itself” were held aloft as music was played loudly.

Some people could be seen on lampposts letting off blue smoke despite the heavy rain.

A small group of of men, many wearing masks and hoods, tried to enter the protest area chanting “free Palestine”.

They waved Palestinian flags and goaded pro-Israel protesters before police officers attempted to move them away.

The group then started throwing objects at police and chanting back at the pro-Israel protesters.

A number of people were taken to nearby police vans.

Officers then cornered the group and members of the public were ushered away.
