Opposition leader Yair Lapid is currently marching alongside families of the hostages and thousands of other Israelis to Jerusalem in a “unity march” for the return of the 134 Hamas-held captives in Gaza.

“You ask us whether we are doing enough to return the hostages, and the answer is no,” he says. “If we were doing enough, then they would already be returning home.”

“I am with you here, and we are here together, because this country cannot live with the idea that they will not return. There is no other possibility. If we must march, we will march, if we must shout, we will shout… until the hostages return home,” he continues.
