Israelis Call on Netanyahu to Step Down over Gaza Truce


Jerusalem, MINA — Over a thousand Israelis rallied in Tel Aviv on Thursday to call for the resignation of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over a cease-fire deal with Gaza-based Palestinian factions, Anadolu Agency reported.

According to Israeli media, around 1,500 protesters denounced Netanyahu’s decision to approve the Gaza cease-fire deal and accused him of “falling in leading the army.”

On Wednesday, scores of Israelis rallied outside the Knesset (Israel’s parliament) in Jerusalem to call for the resignation of Netanyahu.

Since Sunday, at least 14 Palestinians have been martyred — by Israeli airstrikes and artillery — across the blockaded territory.

On Sunday night, an Israeli officer was killed — and another injured — in a botched ground operation in Gaza.
