CALGARY- A fourth man faces charges, following a heated demonstration about the Gaza Strip that turned violent.

On July 18, a rally was held in front of City Hall by pro-Palestinians. Some Israeli supporters showed up, and that’s when a fight broke out between the two sides.

On Wednesday, 18-year-old Kamaal Maxamud Jaamac was charged with one count of assault.

Three others also face assault charges: Aziz Madi, 18, Arlsan Khan, 27, and a 16-year-old young man who cannot be named due to his age.

Police continue to ask for help identifying another man they’d like to speak with.

He’s described as having dark hair, a slim build and was wearing jeans and a white T-shirt with a DULUX logo on it. He also had white paint on his hands.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers.
