Protesters begin to assemble in Jerusalem for four-day demonstration against government

Protesters gather in Jerusalem ahead of an evening demonstration that will kick off a four-day protest event in Israel’s capital.

The organizers of the protest are calling for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his government to resign, for Israel to hold early elections, and for the country’s leaders to agree to a hostage deal that will bring about the release of the 130 captives held in Gaza since October 7.

Protests will be centered around the Knesset but will also be held in other key locations, including close to Netanyahu’s Jerusalem residence.

In videos shared on social media, protesters are seen exiting the Yitzhak Navon train station waving Israeli flags and sounding air horns.
