Protests in Third Day, Blocking Tel Aviv Intersection

YERUSHALAYIM -

An estimated 1,000 people were in Tel Aviv on Thursday in the third consecutive day of protests against the government’s handling of the conflict with Hamas and the current ceasefire.

The demonstrators, from southern Israel, gathered outside IDF headquarters at the Kirya complex in Tel Aviv and blocked traffic, taking turns lying down in the street at a central Tel Aviv intersection, in front of the Azrieli Towers and mall.

Demands for Netanyahu’s resignation were heard, along with recorded “Code Red” air raid sirens and chants of “Bibi, wake up! The south is burning!”

Altercations with police occurred but no arrests have been reported as yet.
