BULLETIN: Violent Clashes in NYC as Pro-Hamas Mob Attacks NYPD

DEVELOPING STORY: Violent clashes are underway in midtown Manhattan as pro-Hamas demonstrators clash with the NYPD. Hundreds, if not thousands of terrorist sympathizers, overwhelmed police positions around Fox News Channel and the Rockefeller Christmas Tree. Click here to watch the moment the clashes started.

Videos show the mob hurling police barricades into a crowd of officers while others clothed in Middle Eastern garb burned a police officer’s hat.

Protestors chanted “Free, free Palestine” as they waved flags and held signs, some reading, “Call it what it is, genocide.”

Protests had been expected by pro-Palestinian activists and officers feared violence or even a terrorist attack might be possible.

Opal Burnett, 33, of St. Louis, Missouri, echoed Fry’s frustration, told The New York Post the protests were i an embarrassment.

“It’s super, super annoying. Just excruciating. Seeing these people in such large numbers, it makes me feel embarrassed to be an American because people are watching this happening from abroad. Kudos to the cops for keeping these people under control and for showing restraint, because they deal with a lot of verbal abuse,” she said.

Jamie Fry, 42, who flew in from the United Kingdom to watch the tree-lighting spectacle said the protest was “very annoying.”

“I had planned my holiday around this event, being a big fan of Christmas. Now I’m walled in by a bunch of terrorist-loving a–holes calling for intifada,” Fry told The Post.
