VICTIMS campaigner Willie Frazer was attacked at Belfast City Hall this afternoon, say his supporters.
A protest rally was held in support of Palestinians under attack from Israeli Defence Forces.
Republicans support the Palestinian movement and a 32 County Sovereignty Committee flag was present at today’s protest rally.
Unionists and loyalists have long supported the Israeli government.
A source told Belfast Daily: “At one stage there was hand to hand fighting at the City Hall involving those supporting the Palestinians and those backing the Israelis.
“Willie got injured and he has red marks on the side of his face from the attack.”
International leaders have called for an end to the attacks by both Hamas and Israel so as to bring about a ceasefire.
