Teenagers at a pro-Palestinian march in the outskirts of Boro Park.

Around three dozen young people marched in the outskirts of Boro Park Thursday afternoon, holding signs and chanting pro-Palestinian slogans.

Video shows the protestors, which appear to be school-aged teenagers, walking on 20th Avenue and 59th Street during school hours.

Groups calling for Israel’s destruction with ties to terrorists, including Al Awda and the Palestinian Youth Movement, organized a citywide walkout of high schools and colleges Thursday; the youths seen walking down 20th Avenue likely responded to that announcement. Students and faculty of at least 75 New York City schools are expected to take part in the demonstrations, and meet at Bryant Park in Manhattan, according to CBS news.

One teenaged boy on 20th Avenue shouted expletives at a Jewish man who filmed the march and asked him if he supports Israel.

An NYPD car drove slowly down the street as the march took place.
