Thousands at Habima Square in Tel Aviv call for “elections now,” as demonstrations kick off marking 100 days since the Hamas terror onslaught in southern Israel.

Many of those in the crowd wave Israeli flags and some wear t-shirts proclaiming they are “loyal to the Declaration of Independence.”

Neta Spillman, whose brother Ilan was murdered at the Supernova festival, denounces the “hubris” of Israel’s leadership in ignoring surveillance soldiers’ warnings that Hamas was openly drilling to attack Israel before October 7.

“You, prime minister, are guilty,” she says. “How do you sleep at night.”

She asks why the hostages have not been returned, and why Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is still in office: “Why are the Bibas family still there, and you’re still here?”

Netanyahu must go, she says, and the State of Israel must be reborn.
