Protesters in major US cities decry airstrikes over Gaza

LOS ANGELES – Pro-Palestinian protesters took to the streets of Los Angeles, Boston, Philadelphia and other U.S. cities on Saturday to demand an end to Israeli airstrikes over the Gaza Strip.

A similar scene played out in Boston as protesters walked a short distance from Copley Square to the Israeli Consulate for New England,
