Florida police arrested three anti-Israel agitators on Saturday afternoon after they blocked traffic on Interstate 4 near Walt Disney World.

FOX 35 in Orlando reported that troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol responded to the scene and found three women holding “Free Palestine” signs while blocking traffic in the westbound lanes of Interstate 4 at Exit 67.

The three women – 26-year-old Isabella Giannosa; 24-year-old My Truong; and 24-year-old Jenni Nguyen – were taken into custody and arrested before being transported to the Orange County Jail and charged with misdemeanor refusal to obey a police officer.

After the incident, police discovered two vehicles parked on the ramp to the interstate, which were then towed away from the scene.
