Violence Erupts During Pro-Israel Rally In Westwood
« on: July 14, 2014, 12:29:33 PM »

WESTWOOD (   —  Violence erupted Sunday afternoon during a pro-Israel peace rally in Westwood.

The rally was taking place in front of the Federal Building with more than 2,000 participants.

Witnesses said four men  in a truck  waved pro-Palestinian flags and started to attack the pro-Israel demonstrators with sticks.

There was also a report of a car being shot at. LAPD West LA division would only confirm a shooting took place.

No one was injured in the shooting, officials said.

KCAL9′s Bobby Kaple reported from the area where hours later several streets were still cordoned off.

Officials told Kaple Wilshire (between Veteran and the 405 Freeway) would be closed “for the foreseeable future,” while an investigation continued.

Following some of the pro-Israel supporters being allegedly hit with sticks, Kaple said “a melee ensued.”
