Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin spoke in Congress on Tuesday only to be interrupted by protestors and activists demanding “ceasefire now” in Gaza and for the US to stop “supporting genocide.”
This after Palestinian terror group Hamas launched an attack on Israel, killing a least 1,300 people, after which Israel declared war and retaliated.
Blinken was speaking about Ukraine and other conflicts around the world.
“Stop the brutal, brutal massacre in Gaza…Ceasefire now! Ceasefire now,” shouted one woman.
“Blinken, you have blood on your hands! Murderer,” yelled another.
“I also hear very much the passions expressed in this room and outside this room. All of us are committed to the protection of civilian life,” Blinken said upon restarting his testimony, according to the Daily Mail.
The protesters were kicked out of the building and held up red painted hands.
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
