Dallas Police arrested more than a dozen people who were protesting against the Gaza war by blocking the entrance to Dallas Love Field Airport on Monday evening.
The Dallas Police Department said officers were called after people reported protestors blocking traffic at the intersection of Mockingbird Lane and Herb Kelleher Way at about 6:20 p.m.
Protestors were demonstrating outside the airport in support of Palestine and calling on President Joe Biden to pursue a ceasefire, according to NBC 5’s Keenan Willard.
Biden was in Dallas Monday evening to attend the wake for longtime U.S. Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson and had flown into and out of Love Field.
Police said they gave the protestors three warnings to clear the roadway, but they refused. As a result, 13 demonstrators were arrested and charged with obstruction of a highway or other passageways.
No injuries were reported in connection with the incident.
