A group of Kurds joined a pro-Israel demonstration outside the White House on Saturday to show solidarity and denounce Gaza-based terror group Hamas.

The protesters chanted “No Hamas, no war,” “Down, down Hamas,” “Long live Israel” and “Long live Kurdistan.” Some of the Israel supporters waved the flag of Kurdistan while others carried Israeli and American flags.

“U.S.A., Kurdistan, Israel: true allies,” they also shouted. “We support Kurdistan. We support Israel. Our true friends.”

The demonstrators also protested against the jihadist group Islamic State (IS), which has been violently taking over parts of Iraq and executing non-Muslims, such as Christians, Yazidis and others.
