Throngs of chanting, flag-waving Palestinian and Israeli supporters angrily clashed outside the Israeli Consulate in Manhattan on Tuesday evening, several hours after Hamas launched a barrage of rockets at Tel Aviv.

Some of the protesters spilled out of barricaded pens and into the roadway around the building on Second Avenue between East 42nd and 43rd streets as NYPD cops appeared to struggle to keep control at times, according to video.

The protests in the NYC escalated as the violence in Israel escalated following rocket strikes from Hamas.

The confrontation came after Hamas launched its missile attack on the Israeli city, which has an anti-rocket defense system that intercepted at least some of the airborne weapons.

The Hamas assault was in retaliation for an Israeli attack earlier in the day that razed a Gaza building where several of its top officials had offices. All part of the day’s vicious cycle, the Israeli attack was in retaliation for several Hamas earlier bombings.
