"Protesters requesting council to boycott Israel, who also attended the Aug. 12 meeting, spoke just before 10 p.m. during the final minutes of the meeting. The protesters asked for a resolution by the city of Dearborn to boycott Israel. In July, over 2,200 people were killed, most of them Palestinians, during conflict between Israel and Hamas, a Palestinian militant group, according to the BBC.
