Israeli police clash with protesters in Tel Aviv

During protests against the Israeli government this Saturday (22), police clashed with protesters in Tel Aviv, when officers tried to disperse the crowd that had gathered near the headquarters of Likud, the party of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Protesters called for an immediate ceasefire in the war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.

Hostage release

Thousands of people protest in Tel Aviv

A double rally was held in another area of ​​Tel Aviv, led by families of Hamas hostages calling for the release of their loved ones.

Protesters also gathered to mark the 20th birthday of Naama Levy, who has been held hostage in Gaza since October 7.

Protests like these have become weekly events, highlighting the divisions in Israeli society, which have reopened after a period of unity at the start of the war.

Israeli police said in a statement that three protesters were detained.

War in Gaza enters 9th month

Israel’s ground and air offensives in Gaza were triggered when Hamas militants invaded southern Israel on October 7, 2023, killing around 1,200 people and capturing more than 250 hostages, according to Israeli calculations.

The attacks left Gaza in ruins, killing more than 37,500 people, according to Palestinian health officials, and left nearly the entire population homeless and facing a widespread humanitarian crisis.

More than eight months after the start of the war, Israel’s advance is now focused on the last two areas its forces still want to take: Rafah in the far south of Gaza and the area around Deir al-Balah in the central region of the enclave.
