It has been 9 months since the Gaza war started on October 8 last year. The Netanyahu government is also supporting multiple ceasefire proposals. The ceasefire agreement is being stopped due to various reasons. On the other hand, Israel’s rampage continues in Gaza in violation of international sanctions. As a result, despite several attempts, there is no final solution to the hostage agreement with Hamas. In the meantime, the people of the country have protested in Israel in an effort to pressure the Netanyahu government. The protest started on Sunday morning. At this time, the protestors rallied in front of the house of government ministers along with blocking the road. Reuters.

According to Israeli media, the protests began at 6:29 a.m. local time on October 7, coinciding with the timing of the attack by Israel’s Palestinian militant group Hamas. During the protests, protesters blocked roads at major intersections across the country during the city’s busy hours. Protests were also held at major intersections in the country, including Nahalal, Caesarea, Bilu and Ra’anana-Herzliya. Then they set fire to tires on the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem highway for a while.

Efforts to reach an accord between Israel and Hamas in Gaza have gained momentum in recent days after nine months of fighting, officials said. However, some other issues remain unresolved between the two sides. Small groups with microphones and banners also protested outside the homes of several ministers and coalition lawmakers. Several lawmakers and ministers, including Defense Minister Yoav Galant, Foreign Minister Israel Katz, Knesset Speaker Amir Ohana, Economy Minister Nir Barkat, Transport Minister Miri Regev, Agriculture Minister Avi Dichter, rallied outside the house.

Outside the home of Cabinet Minister Ron Dermer, a member of Netanyahu’s inner coalition, a small crowd of protesters chanted, ‘Total failure! Complete failure!’ Protesters hung a black balloon for each person killed in the October 7 attack on Kibbutz Or Haner, near the Gaza border, and a yellow balloon for each person still held hostage in Gaza. However, some Israelis disagreed with the protesters. Instead, they are pressing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government to reject the deal and continue fighting until all of the country’s objectives are met. Meanwhile, the Gaza Ministry of Health says that more than 38,000 Palestinians have been killed so far in response to Hamas attacks in southern Israel.
