Protesters waving Palestinian flags and shouting "Free Palestine" squared off against supporters of Israel outside Fort Lauderdale's courthouse Tuesday evening over four days of warfare in the Gaza Strip.

More than 100 people accused the Israeli military of genocide and demanded an end to its airstrikes. Across Southeast Third Avenue, about two dozen people charged that the Gaza Strip is controlled by terrorists and demanded a stop to rocket attacks that Israel says prompted its actions.

The two sides traded chants as rush-hour traffic passed by and police officers stood watch.
