U.S. Capitol Police officers arrested about 50 anti-Israel protesters who sought to shut down the Senate cafeteria in Washington on Tuesday.

The protesters said “Children are starving in Gaza” and “People are dying in Gaza,” per Fox News. The news network added that some of them appeared to be the same as those who disrupted a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on Tuesday.

The protesters also reportedly said that “Senate can’t eat until Gaza eats.” 

The Senate cafeteria is typically open to the public during certain hours of the day.

Capitol Police said that “it is illegal to demonstrate inside any of the Congressional Buildings.”
