Anti-war protestors repeatedly interrupt Senate hearing on Israel

Sudan Events – Sumaya Sayed

Multiple protesters calling for a cease-fire in Gaza repeatedly interrupted Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s testimony Tuesday at a Senate Appropriations Committee hearing, as police dragged them out of the room one by one.
Each time one protester was escorted out of the hearing by police, Blinken would resume his testimony, only to be interrupted by another protester.
Cable news networks carried several of the interruptions live, showcasing the deep divide on the left over the Biden administration’s backing of Israel’s offensive on Gaza, which is controlled by Hamas.
Hamas-controlled health ministry in Gaza has said that more than 8,000 people have been killed from the counter attacks.
Other protestors held red-stained hands in the air, arguing the administration had blood on its hands for its support of Israel.
