nullLocal activists will hold a rally in solidarity with the people of Gaza on Friday.

The event will start at 5 p.m. at the Federal Building on State Street.

Activists say the rally is in response to the overwhelming use of force by Israel on the people of Gaza.

They are calling for an immediate end to Israel's bombing campaign and to end the use of U.S taxpayer dollars in support of Israel.

Early Friday, 85 missiles exploded in Gaza City within 45 minutes as Israeli troops lined up near the Palestinian territory-- signaling a possible ground invasion.
