DENVER (AP) — Hundreds gathered for a rally at the State Capitol and a march through downtown Denver to call for an end to what they called a humanitarian crisis brought on by conflict in Gaza.

Demonstrators waving red, black, white and green Palestinian flags and signs that read “End Collective Punishment” gathered on the Capitol lawn Saturday. Denver police said the group marched peacefully through Denver.

The rally was organized by a coalition of groups supporting a Palestinian homeland. One of the rally’s leaders is Nadeen Ibrahim, president of the Muslim Student Association at the University of Colorado, Denver.

Rocket attacks from Gaza and Israeli military action over 12 days have killed two Israelis civilians and 342 Palestinians. United Nations officials say that about 50,000 Palestinians are already staying in UN shelters.

 File - In the Oct. 18, 2014 file photo, Garteh Korkoryah, center, mother of Thomas Eric Duncan, is comforted during a memorial service for her son. It may not matter much that Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas apologized for initially misdiagnosing Duncan, who was sent home from the emergency room but later returned sicker and farther along on a painful decline to death from Ebola. Insulated by Texas tort reform that gives an extra layer of protection to emergency room doctors and nurses, not only is the very feasibility of winning a lawsuit complicated, but the potential payout is severely capped.
