A crowd gathered in the Mission District Saturday to protest the recent actions of Israel against Gaza and Palestinians.

Conflict between Israel and Hamas has intensified recently, with Hamas firing missiles at Tel Aviv and and Israel bombing buildings in Gaza including an office building housing international media Saturday.

CNN on Saturday listed the death toll from Israeli airstrikes in Gaza over the past week at more than 130 people, and cited a death toll of 10 for Israel.

Saturday’s protest, which drew thousands of people, began at 16th and Valencia streets and ended at Dolores Park.
