Several thousand Israelis are currently demonstrating in Jerusalem, urging the government to resident international pressure for a ceasefire and to continue the war until Hamas is defeated.

Many of the participants are holding posters with pictures of fallen soldiers and the message that in their deaths they willed that Israel continue to victory.

The demonstration appears to represent a foil to more prominent ones held in recent weeks that have pressured the government to make concessions necessary to secure a hostage deal before it is too late.

Tonight’s demonstration aims to strengthen the stance voiced repeatedly by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has vowed to continue fighting until “total victory.”
