Families of hostages block Tel Aviv road, demand Israel take deal

Several families of hostages held in Gaza have blocked Tel Aviv’s major Begin Road, demanding Israel agree to a hostage release deal, though it is not clear what deal Hamas has agreed to.

Einav Zangauker, the mother of hostage Matan Zangauker, tells Channel 12, addressing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: “This is your hour. Be brave, be a leader. The government and war cabinet should accept the deal. We need our hostages home. Every last one.

“If our government and prime minister miss this chance — probably my last chance to see Matan return home and for other families to see their loved one return home — I will bring out all Israelis. The streets will burn, the country will burn… You can’t play like this with people’s lives.”
