Pro-Palestinian protesters brought traffic on San Francisco's iconic Golden Gate Bridge to a standstill, demanding an end to the ongoing Israeli Occupation and aggression in the Gaza Strip, which has persisted for over six months.

Aerial footage depicted a lengthy line of parked cars spanning the bridge's expanse, while lanes in the opposite direction remained empty. The demonstrators effectively halted both inbound and outbound traffic from the city, displaying banners calling for a ceasefire in Gaza.

Demonstrations across the United States have sporadically emerged since the commencement of Israeli Occupation aggression in Gaza, advocating for a ceasefire following extensive military operations that resulted in the deaths of over 33,000 individuals, predominantly women and children.
