Pro-Israel and pro-Palestine demonstrators clash in downtown Montreal protest

At least one arrest was made and several fights broke out between Israeli and Palestinian supporters at a pro-Israel demonstration in Montreal on Sunday. Dozens of riot police were dispatched to get the crowds under control at the rally, which police declared illegal. This comes after thousands of Montrealers took to the streets of Montreal in support of Palestinians on Saturday.
