Tensions lead to unrest at pro-Palestinian rallies across US cities

As tensions flare in the Middle East over the Israel-Hamas war, pro-Palestinian rallies across multiple U.S. cities over the weekend unraveled into unrest and chaos.

In Minneapolis, supporters at a pro-Palestine rally blocked traffic along the streets near a pedestrian bridge Sunday afternoon when police responded to multiple reports of disturbances, FOX9 Minneapolis reported.

At some point, a vehicle drove through the crowd of protesters, police told the outlet. 

Some of the protesters chased after the driver, kicking the car at a traffic light, according to the station. The vehicle then reversed and sped away across a median crosswalk.

More than 1,400 people in Israel have been killed, mostly civilians who died in the initial Hamas rampage into southern Israel. The Hamas-run Health Ministry said Monday that at least 5,087 Palestinians have been killed and 15,270 wounded.
