Hostage families are blocking traffic outside Prime Minister Netanyahu’s private Jerusalem residence on Azza Street.

The protest consists of a few dozen demonstrators, quickly growing in numbers, waving signs with the faces and names of the remaining hostages in Hamas captivity.

The crowd is shouting a chant demanding an immediate hostage exchange deal.

“The cabinet is responsible for the lives of the hostages!” they shout.

At the conclusion of the protest, the families are expected to pitch a tent below Netanyahu’s home and stay there through the night.
