Two reported arrested in Toronto as pro-Palestinian group heckles rally for hostages

Two people have been arrested in Toronto as tensions flared between a crowd holding a rally calling for the release of hostages held in Gaza and a small group of pro-Palestinian activists who apparently oppose the release of hostages.

The arrests are reported by the Toronto Star, though the nature of the arrests or possible charges remain unclear.

In a video shared online, a man wearing a Palestinian flag a short distance away from the pro-Israel rally, yells into a speaker threatening that “your happy days are over,” and calls participants “prophet killers” who killed Jesus, to cheers from those next to him.

Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre attends the rally, calling for a two-state solution, but only after Hamas is completely destroyed.
