LAS VEGAS (AP) — A pro-Israel rally is scheduled outside the federal courthouse in Las Vegas as a conflict with Hamas rages.

The Israeli-American Council Las Vegas is organizing the "We Stand With Israel" demonstration, which is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Lloyd D. George Federal Building downtown.

The group's website describes its mission as strengthening the Jewish and Israeli identity of the next generation and reinforcing support for Israel.

The council says an estimated 10,000 Israelis live in Nevada.

Palestinian militants have fired more than 2,000 rockets toward Israel since fighting began on July 8, while Israel has responded with airstrikes and a ground war on Gaza.
