Pro-Palestinian protesters chant anti-Biden slogans outside White House

A swarm of Pro-Palestinian supporters shouted “f–k Joe Biden” slogans as they nearly ripped down a reinforced fence outside the White House during a charged protest Saturday night.

Non-essential personnel were evacuated from the area as a precaution as the aggressive demonstration ramped up, the Secret Service confirmed.

Video shows the crowd shaking the fence so viciously that a section of it became partially dislodged while a horde of Secret Service police pushed back to keep the ralliers from entering the grounds.

Some protesters hurled water bottles and the sticks broken off their Palestinian flags at the officers, while others tried to climb the fence.

“F–k Joe Biden!” the ralliers screamed.

“Break it down! You support the murder of children!”

The anti-scale fencing sustained some “temporary damage,” but the actual White House fence and adjacent buildings were left untouched, a Secret Service spokesperson told The Post.

“The issues were promptly repaired on site by U.S. Secret Service support teams,” said Lt. Paul Mayhair.

“As a precaution, some members of the media and staff in proximity to Pennsylvania Avenue were temporarily relocated while the issue was being addressed.”

No arrests were made.

The Secret Service had erected the fencing hours earlier in anticipation of the demonstration opposite the White House, which was the planned culmination to a march through Washington DC calling for the end to Israeli military action in Gaza.

Thousands of protesters participated in the rally, some carrying signs that read: “No votes for Genocide Joe,” “Biden has blood on his hands” and “Let Gaza live.”

Biden has been a supporter of Israel and approved an “emergency sale” that sent nearly 14000 rounds of tank ammunition worth $106M to the Jewish State last month.

The rally heavily focused on the substantial death toll in Gaza that has accumulated in the 100 days since Israel retaliated for Hamas’ Oct. 7 surprise attack on its civilians.

More than 23,800 people in Gaza — nearly two-thirds of whom are women and children — have been killed during Israel’s counterattack campaign, according to the Health Ministry in the Hamas-run territory.

Israel declared war in response to Hamas’ unprecedented cross-border attack on Oct. 7 in which the Islamic militant group killed some 1,200 people, mostly civilians, and took 250 others hostage

An estimated 132 hostages are still being held in Gaza.
