Protesters block Tel Aviv’s Ayalon Highway calling for deal to free 19 women held by Hamas

Protesters demanding the immediate release of 130 hostages held by terror groups in Gaza since October 7 are blocking morning traffic on Tel Aviv’s Ayalon Highway.

In videos on social media, the crowd of protesters can be heard chanting, “Deal now!” calling for a hostage release agreement with the Hamas terror group, and holding photos of 19 women still held captive, after 105 civilians — mostly women and children — were released during a weeklong truce in late November.

The tactic of blocking roads has been used repeatedly in recent months as the hostages’ families have pledged to intensify measures to disrupt public order in order to secure the return of their loved ones.
