PIX11 reports that on Thursday evening, pro-Palestinian demonstrators vandalized two New York Police Department (NYPD) vehicles in the vicinity of The New York Times building in Manhattan.
The police vehicles were splattered with “Free Gaza” and “Fuck IDF KKK” graffiti by protesters.
At least one police cruiser’s rear window was shattered by protesters, and a smoke bomb was detonated by a demonstrator in close proximity to police officers who were on the observation deck of the events.
Students engaged in a strike in front of the New York Public Library on 42nd Street, where the demonstration initially began.
Protesters approached the New York Times building, where a portion of them staged a sit-in while others distributed satirical newspapers.
On the windows of the structure, demonstrators daubed “blood on your hands” and “free Palestine,” among other anthems.
There were reports that protestors had momentarily obstructed the entrance to The New York Times building, while a minimum of thirty individuals engaged in chanting within the lobby.
Pro-Palestinian demonstrations have emerged throughout the country in the wake of Hamas’s Oct. 7 barbaric terrorist attack against Israel.
In New York City, antisemitic assaults have increased by more than 300 percent since the Hamas terrorist attacks.
