In New York City, two Israeli men, Thomas Hand and Michael Levy, whose family members are believed to be held hostage by Hamas, faced an act of antisemitic outrage on Wednesday night, Fox News reported.

As they were viewing posters of the kidnapped victims outside Central Synagogue, a woman tore down about 10 posters displaying names, faces, and ages of the hostages.

The incident occurred while both men were part of an Israeli delegation raising awareness about the plight of the hostages and their families in New York City.
