Nearly 100 protestors broke into the lobby of The New York Times, urging the newspaper's editorial board to openly support a ceasefire in Gaza.

The demonstrators called for an immediate halt to the hostilities in Gaza, accusing the media of bias towards Tel Aviv in its coverage of the war in the Strip.

Protesters gathered outside the newspaper's headquarters in Manhattan, with many entering the building's lobby to demand an end to the war in Gaza.

Chanting "From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free," the protesters read the names of thousands of Palestinians who have been martyred in Gaza, including dozens of journalists confirmed to have been martyred since the start of the war.

Protesters distributed copies of a fake newspaper titled "New York War Crimes," accusing the media of "complicity in whitewashing genocide,"

They called for holding the New York Times accountable for 'incitement to genocide.'
