SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Pro-Palestinian protesters gathered in downtown San Diego as tensions grow in the Middle East.

Video from the scene shows dozens of protestors marching through streets downtown.

Hamas, a designated terrorist organization according to the US Department of State, has fired more than 3,000 rockets from civilian areas in Gaza at civilian targets in Israel, ABC News reports.

So far, the fighting between Hamas and Israel has killed 213 Palestinians and 12 people in Israel, the Associated Press reported Monday.
