Several thousand Israelis gathered Saturday night to call for an end to Israeli attacks on Gaza and for peace between Israel and Palestine.
The left wing activists gathered in Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square for the protest, where they chanted “Stop the war” and “Jews and Arabs refuse to be enemies,” according to the Times of Israel and the Daily Caller.
The protest also included a memorial for the people killed in both Gaza and Israel, where protesters wrote out the words “forgive us” in candles.
A counter-rally of a few hundred people also took place at the same time nearby, with police monitoring the situation to try to stop conflicts between the two sides. After the protests dispersed, several anti-war protesters were allegedly injured according to 972mag.com.
The protests ended around 10 p.m. when Hamas resumed firing rockets at Israel after a ceasefire.
