    Some demonstrators regrouped and continued to protest, calling on the US ambassador to be expelled from the country.

    Demonstrators had also placed dolls representing babies killed during Israeli's war on the barbed wire barricade outside the building.

    The protest comes amid sporadic fire after Israel began a unilateral cessation of hostilities early on Sunday morning in its 22-day war on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, which has so far killed more than 1,200 people since December 27.
