According to Tasnim dispatches, the protesters gathered in front of the official residence and workplace of US President Donald Trump on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Six-Day War.

The Six-Day War was fought on June 5-10, 1967 between the Israeli regime on the one side and Egypt, Jordan, and Syria on the other. At the end of that war, Israel occupied the West Bank, East al-Quds ( Jerusalem), the Gaza Strip, and parts of the Golan Heights. Israel later withdrew from Gaza but lay a siege to it.

The protesters in Washington chanted anti-Israeli slogans and expressed their support for the Palestinian nation.

They also carried banners reading “Peace with Palestine, Not War with Iran”, “50 Years of Occupation; Time to Free Palestine”, “Free, Free Palestine”, and “Stop Israeli War Crimes, End US Tax Dollars for Israel”.
