Tens of thousands demand Netanyahu's 'immediate' replacement --Demonstrators have accused the Israeli prime minister of slow-walking a ceasefire deal to please hardliners in his cabinet | 6 April 2024 | Tens of thousands of protesters have gathered in Tel Aviv to demand the resignation of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the return of hostages still held by Hamas in Gaza. Nearly six months to the day since Israel declared war on Hamas, around 100,000 people gathered in Tel Aviv's Democracy Square on Saturday evening, protest organizers claimed. Carrying Israeli flags and chanting anti-government slogans, the demonstrators called for early elections and implored Netanyahu to strike a deal with the Palestinian militants to release more than 100 Israelis thought to remain in captivity. Speaking at a pre-protest press conference, Einav Zangauker, whose son was taken to Gaza as a hostage, said: "Netanyahu is failing the deal on purpose and he is standing between us and our loved ones in Gaza."
