Dozens of people are protesting at the entrance to the southern city of Sderot, calling on the government to take stronger action after more than 100 rockets were fired at Israel from the Gaza Strip.

Protesters are blocking the road and chanting slogans against the government.

“The fate of Sderot should be like the fate of Tel Aviv,” organizers say. “If more than 100 rockets were launched at Tel Aviv, the government would have reacted differently.”

“The government we elected did not react appropriately,” the statement said, expressing disappointment with the right-wing coalition.
