(FOX NEWS) – Tens of thousands of people are expected to gather in the nation’s capital on Tuesday to show support for Israel and condemn antisemitism.

Organizers of the “March for Israel” say as many as 100,000 people are anticipated to turn out for the event, which will take place from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

A coalition of Jewish organizations planned the march to show solidarity with the people of Israel in the wake of the Oct. 7 terror attacks in which Hamas terrorists infiltrated the Jewish state and massacred more than 1,200 Israelis, mostly civilians. Israel declared war on Hamas last month and has relentlessly bombed the Gaza Strip and sent ground forces into the Palestinian territory to eliminate the terrorist group and free the remaining 238 hostages taken in the initial attack.

Thousands of Palestinian civilians have been killed in the crossfire, a consequence of Hamas placing military targets next to civilian infrastructure such as schools, homes and hospitals, according to both Israeli and U.S. officials.
