(Scroll down for video) Photos emerged showing a large Palestinian flag flying over the Manhattan Bridge in New York City.
The New York Police Department said that they launched an investigation on Wednesday night, after pro-Hamas groups managed to fly the Palestinian flag on the Manhattan Bridge.
The Palestinian flag was seen shortly after 7:00 p.m. “Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions,” was written on the flag. At 7:20 p.m., police removed the flag from the bridge.
Pro-Hamas groups vowed to cover the Brooklyn Bridge in a sea of Palestinian flags to show support for the Palestinian resistance against Israel.
A march began at Cadman Plaza in Brooklyn, and ended at One Police Plaza in Manhattan. Police said that the incident of the flag is not being considered a security breach.
The Palestinian flag was preserved as evidence, and so far, no arrests have been made.
