Israeli press: Hamas played Israel perfectly Israeli press: Hamas played Israel perfectly

A group gathered in Farragut Square in the capital for the demonstration organized by the social platforms IfNotNow and Jewish Voice for Peace. "American Jews now call for a ceasefire, stop the genocide against Palestinians" was the headline of the demonstration in social media posts.

The group unfurled a large banner reading "Ceasefire" and carried banners reading "No to war, no to discrimination", "My pain is not your weapon" and "Stop the genocide in Gaza".

The group drew attention to the humanitarian crisis in Gaza in their speeches and slogans and then marched towards the White House.

The group continued to protest in front of the White House, blocking traffic and blocking the entrances to the White House with a sit-in protest.

The police detained about 15 demonstrators who tried to block the road.
