Pro-Palestine Protesters Cause Chaos at JFK Airport

In a disruptive New Year’s Day demonstration, a pro-Palestine mob orchestrated a blockade at JFK airport and surrounding roads, plunging travelers into a gridlock nightmare.

The protest, organized by the pro-Palestine group WOL, urged participants to flood JFK Terminal 4 on Monday.

As a consequence, only individuals with boarding passes and employees possessing valid identification are permitted entry onto the JFK Air Train at Jamacia Station.

Chaos Unfolds Amidst Chants and Blocked Traffic

The scene around the airport is chaotic, with cars lining the highway towards the airport, while protestors chant slogans like ‘NYD KKK, IDF, you’re all the same.’

This blockade has resulted in severe traffic congestion near the airport, affecting routes leading to passenger terminals near I-678 South and Exit C.

Police Response and Travel Advisory

The demonstration, titled ‘FLOOD JFK FOR GAZA,’ has drawn hundreds of protestors already gathering at the JFK international airport in Queens, New York.

Law enforcement at JFK airport is taking significant measures to manage the situation.

Meanwhile, the NYPD Chief of Transportation issued a travel advisory urging anyone flying out of JFK Airport to plan their journey in advance due to the planned protests, emphasizing the likelihood of delays.

The message aimed to ensure travelers don’t miss their flights amidst the disruptive demonstrations, concluding with well wishes for a safe journey and a Happy New Year.
