The Baltimore City Council failed to adopt a resolution condemning Hamas, moments after pro-Palestinian protestors interrupted the meeting. All but four councilmembers voted in favor of the resolution officially condemning the terrorist organization. Those who abstained were Kristerfer Burnett, Ryan Dorsey, Phylicia Porter and Odette Ramos. Before the vote, protestors, calling for a cease-fire in the Israel-Hamas war, shouted, “Free, free Palestine!” The group was then calmly escorted out of the chambers.
