Union flag protesters have extended their weekly protest to heckle peaceful protesters opposed to the Israeli assault on Gaza.

Prominent unionists Willie Frazer and Ruth Patterson were among those waving Israeli flags.  It was reported by onlookers that they were surrounded and out numbered and had to call for the support of the PSNI as they tried to leave via Chichester Street.

Riot police with dogs created a wall to separate both groups.
