PHOTOS: Palestinian Supporters Demonstrate in Westwood

Palestinian supporters demonstrate Tuesday near the Federal Building.

Dozens of Palestinian supporters gathered Tuesday evening near the Federal Building in Westwood to protest military action in Israel and Gaza.

The demonstration was much smaller than one over the weekend that drew hundreds of Israeli and Palestinian supporters to the same spot. 

Police cars were parked near the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard and Veteran Avenue on Tuesday evening as demonstrators carrying signs and banners gathered on the corners. They shouted, "From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free" and "Stop the killing, stop the crime, free, free Palestine."

There were no arrests as of about 6:40 p.m., according to Los Angeles Police Department officials.

Demonstrators began to disperse about 7 p.m.
