Protesters hold rallies calling for immediate elections to be held, amid the ongoing Israel-Hamas war in Gaza.

The main demonstration is taking place at Habima Square in Tel Aviv, while smaller rallies are also staged in Haifa and outside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s home in the northern coastal town of Caesarea.

Organizers of the Tel Aviv protests say that 20,000 people are present.

The sister of Shira Eylon, who was murdered by Hamas terrorists at the Supernova festival on October 7, tells the protest in Tel Aviv that her sister “was abandoned to a shocking death.”

“I believe that everyone has a role in the world and that Shira’s role was to spread light and unite those around her,” Adar Eylon is quoted as saying by the Haaretz daily. “My role is to ensure that happens. I promised her that this didn’t happen for nothing. The deaths of our loved ones were not in vain.”

“The change begins within us and starts with worthy leadership. Without leadership like this, we cannot begin the healing process,” adds Eylon.
