Arrests in Israel during a demonstration demanding the release of hostages

Demonstrators who participated in the Tel Aviv protests said that they were subjected to violence by the Israeli police, while demanding to reach an agreement with the Hamas movement to release hostages held in the Gaza Strip since October 7.

The Times of Israel newspaper reported that the march, which began on Monday evening in Tel Aviv, later turned into “clashes with police forces,” while some participants, including opposition parliamentarian Nima Azimi, said they were “subjected to violence.”

Relatives of the hostages, including those who were released during the week-long truce in November, participated in the protest, demanding that the government stop the war in order to return the kidnapped people to their homes.

The march later reached the area of ​​the Likud Party headquarters in Tel Aviv, where the police used water cannons to disperse the protest, while arresting 5 people on charges of disturbing public order, according to the newspaper.

The police blamed the demonstrators, saying that “a small number of demonstrators intended to disrupt order and engage in violence toward police officers,” adding that some of them, “including a Knesset member,” were stopped while trying to enter the Likud Party headquarters.

Reports indicate that 129 hostages remain in Gaza – not all of them alive – after 105 were released during the truce in November, while 4 hostages were released before that.

The army freed 3 hostages alive, and the bodies of 12 hostages were recovered, including 3 who were killed by the Israeli army by mistake.

The Israeli army confirmed the killing of 34 of those still detained by Hamas, citing intelligence information and results obtained by forces operating in Gaza.

The war broke out in Gaza following unprecedented attacks by the Hamas movement, which is classified as a terrorist group, which led to the killing of 1,200 people, the majority of whom were civilians and including women and children, according to official Israeli figures.

On the other hand, Israel responded with intense bombing of the Gaza Strip and ground operations, causing the deaths of more than 34,000 people in the Strip, most of them women and children, according to the Ministry of Health in the Strip.
