Australian police said on Tuesday they were investigating a pro-Palestinian protest outside Sydney Opera House, after footage emerged of a small group appearing to chant anti-Semitic slogans at the demonstration.

Around 1,000 pro-Palestinian supporters marched through downtown Sydney on Monday evening to the city’s iconic Opera House, which the government had illuminated in the colors of the Israeli flag following Saturday’s attacks by Hamas which Israel says killed over 900.

Palestine’s Health Ministry said at least 830 Palestinians had been killed in Israeli retaliation air strikes on the blockaded enclave since then.
