Charleston sees rallies for and against Israel

Today, while Israeli troops pushed into southern Gaza City, two rallies were held in Charleston.

Around a hundred folks in support of Israel gathered at Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim in downtown Charleston and also paraded down King Street and had a small gathering in Marion Square.

But the pro-Israel group in Marion Square was outnumbered by a pro-Palestinian group of several dozen that had gathered for a second day -- ABC News 4 had a video from the first day.

Meanwhile, a group that supports Israel is planning a rally outside the South Carolina Statehouse at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, January 14.

You can head over to The New York Times for the latest on the conflict that has left some 900 Palestinians dead -- a figure that excludes Hamas fighters, "who have not been brought to hospitals."
