The protesters gathered in the city’s Kaplan Junction with some singing and chanting anti-government slogans. Many called for the prime minister to do more to secure the release of 134 hostages being held in Gaza by Palestinian militants.

International pressure for a ceasefire has grown, with more than 30,000 Palestinians killed in Israel’s Gaza offensive, according to Gaza health authorities, and the UN warning that a quarter of the population is one step away from famine.
