( After Hillary Clinton was officially nominated as the Democratic Party’s candidate for president at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday, supporters of her primary opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) were filmed burning an Israeli flag outside of the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia where the convention is being held.

A woman wearing a black bandanna on her face was seen lighting the flag on fire, and protesters were also filmed chanting "long live the (Palestinian) intifada.” Protesters were also seen waving a Palestinian flag, the Associated Press reported.

The National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) tweeted that the flag burning was “disgusting and totally reprehensible. These protesters aren't only wrong, but are fundamentally anti-progressive."
