Amid the Israel-Hamas war, numerous individuals who are showing support for the hostages and their families are currently engaged in protests, expressing their dissatisfaction with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's management of the crisis.

As reported by The Times of Israel, Levy, 62, a protestor, from Tel Aviv, said “I want Benjamin Netanyahu and all his people to go home because they’ve abandoned residents of the south and they’re not interested in the lives of residents there and instead they’re obsessed with small politics."

At the protest, demonstrators are shouting slogans like "Go to jail, Bibi!" and "Leave," as an expression of their solidarity with the families of the deceased and those held captive by Hamas. In the midst of the crowd, signs and placards are seen with messages such as “Bibi, you have blood on your hands," “We've been abandoned," “Return the hostages immediately," and “There's no trust, quit", the report stated.

A solitary protester voicing support for the government and Prime Minister Netanyahu stands out from the crowd, but the police promptly intervene to keep them separated from the other demonstrators.
