HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Pro-Israel and Pro-Palestine supporters made up of all different races and religions were out in force on Saturday in Huntsville.

All four corners at the intersection of Whitesburg Drive and Airport Road were packed with people supporting both sides. Despite having different ideas of how to achieve peace, both said that's exactly what they want to happen.

“We don't necessarily agree with everything that are being said, for instance that American people and Jews don't care about Palestine,” said pro-Israel supporter Laura King. “We do care about Palestine, we do care about the people.”

“Pro-peace means looking at everybody as God's creatures with equal rights,” said pro-Palestine supporter Aladin Beshir. “We're looking for justice for everybody not just us.”

Protestors said they'll keep up the fight until there's a resolution.
