Middle East Violence Protests Erupt in Iowa

Updated: Thursday, July 24 2014, 07:45 AM CDT
CAIRO, EGYPT (CBS2/FOX28) - Secretary of State John Kerry is back in Egypt after failing to get a cease-fire deal sorted out in the Middle East.
Meantime, overnight, the FAA lifted its ban on American flights into Israel’s main airport.
The ban had been in place for more than a day after a rocket hit very close to the Tel Aviv airport.
During the ban, Secretary Kerry flew to Cairo anyway in hopes of ending the 17-day conflict between Israelis and Palestinians.
He says even though a deal wasn't reached, he's hopeful.
Since Tuesday’s attack, Israeli’s have been pushing people to leave areas where the fighting is the worst.
And here at home, pro-Palestinian demonstrators in Iowa say some of those people can't leave that area.
Demonstrators gathered for a peace rally yesterday in Des Moines.
Hamas leaders have encouraged Palestinians to get out of the area, but many Palestinian families say they don't have anywhere to flee; centers that were set up to keep neighbors safe likes schools are *full and running out of supplies.
A protest of the violence is planned in Iowa City Thursday night at 5.
