At a protest on Monday in the US capital that was organized by the Jewish left-wing activist group If Not Now, about 150 people blocked the street near the Trump International Hotel.

"Hamas maps and social media show the fastest routes to reach Israeli communities in case demonstrators make it through the security fence", Haley said. We will see this reality. The PM said the violence was "destructive to peace efforts".
