LOS ANGELES (AP) — Muslims in Los Angeles plan to demonstrate support for Palestinians in the Gaza Strip amid the intense conflict between Israel and Hamas militants.

The organization American Muslims for Palestine said it will hold Friday prayers and a rally outside the Federal Building in Westwood.

The event comes less than two weeks after a pro-Israel demonstration at the same location that ended with an altercation between participants and a group of Palestinian supporters who showed up.

The Federal Building on Wilshire Boulevard has long been a gathering point for demonstrations and protests on international issues.
