CNN reporter Sarah Sidner was live from the West Bank this morning, with angry crowds of Palestinians chanting 'F**k CNN – you’re not welcome here’ in the region’s latest indicator. Hatred of America swells.

Sidner is one of the network’s correspondents who has been in the region since Hamas launched the war on October 7. On Friday he was reporting from a street in the West Bank – one of the two Palestinian territories – when he was approached by an angry man.

’You are a genocidal supporter. You are not welcome here!’ He yelled at Sidner, getting close to her face as the others surrounded them.

’F*** CNN! F*** CNN!’ They screamed as Sidner and his crew moved silently.

CNN reporter Sarah Sidner was attacked by a group of Palestinians while reporting from the West Bank on Friday.
’You’re genocide reporters, you’re not welcome here,’ the man told Sidner and his crew.
The man got close to Sidner’s face, pointed at her and shouted, 'f**k CNN!’

The conflict is further evidence of US aggression in the Middle East and around the world.

On Friday, anti-US protests were seen in Malaysia, Indonesia and Bangladesh, while thousands of Palestinian supporters gathered elsewhere.

Earlier this week, the US military in Iraq, Syria and Yemen intercepted drone strikes and missiles.

USS Carney shot down two surface-to-air missiles and three drones fired by Iran-backed Houthi militias in Yemen.

It was unclear whether the target was Israel or the ship. There were no injuries on board and none were reported on land among the public.

Sidner and team quickly moved to point to the incident as evidence of increasing aggression toward the United States in the Middle East.

On Tuesday, troops intercepted three drones at Al-Assad Air Base in Iraq. In the north, Al-Harir Air Base intercepted two more.

There were also attacks against troops in Syria near the al-Tanf air base near Syria’s border with Iraq and Jordan.

Another was reported at Conoco Airport. An Iranian-backed group, the Iraqi Islamic Resistance Group, has claimed credit for the attempted strike against the Conoco site, but U.S. officials have yet to confirm that specific strike.

On Wednesday, a contractor at Al-Assad Air Base in Iraq died of a heart attack while sheltering amid reports of an incoming attack.

President Biden last night offered a generous, $100 billion aid package to Israel and Ukraine.

„We cannot and will not allow terrorists like Hamas and tyrants like Putin to win,” Biden said in his speech from the Oval Office.
