Unidentified Protester Wanted for Flag Burning at Pro-Palestinian Demonstration

Police have released a photo of an unidentified protester wanted for allegedly lighting a U.S. flag on fire during a pro-Palestinian demonstration in front of a WWI memorial in New York City earlier this week. The incident occurred at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and East 67th Street around 6:30 p.m. on Monday.

According to authorities, the suspect, who was wearing a keffiyeh, snatched the flag from a 48-year-old woman and proceeded to set it ablaze. The protester’s face is mostly obscured in the photo due to the Palestinian scarf he was wearing. Described as a male with a light complexion and medium build, he was last seen wearing a red shirt, black shorts, and carrying a black book bag.

In a separate incident at the same protest, a 16-year-old anti-Israel protester was arrested on Friday for allegedly vandalizing the 107th Infantry Memorial. The teenager has been charged with criminal mischief in the third degree, a felony, and making graffiti, a misdemeanor. The memorial, depicting seven WWI foot soldiers in battle, was reportedly climbed upon by several other protesters waving Palestinian flags.
