Protesters at the hostage families’ demonstration in Tel Aviv call for a deal to release the remaining 120 captives in Gaza.

Hostage relatives speak one after the other on Azrieli Bridge over Begin Road, stressing that the four hostages who were rescued by Israeli forces today said they were aware of the protests calling for their release while they were in captivity.

Several hostage family members, while joyous over the operation, express fear that the mission could negatively influence the condition of the remaining hostages, further emphasizing the urgency of a deal.

Demonstrators begin marching south toward Democracy Square.
