Israeli police used water cannon to clear anti-government demonstrators from a main junction in the center of Tel Aviv on Saturday night.

The protesters demand weekly the resignation of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and an immediate deal to release the hostages held by Hamas in Gaza.

Police were seen deploying water cannons and pushing protesters to disperse the crowd.

Earlier this week, Hamas said it had accepted a Qatari-Egyptian cease-fire deal that would end the war and bring about the phased release of some of the Israeli hostages held in Gaza.

Israel swiftly rejected the deal, saying it did not meet “core demands,” and hours later sent tanks to capture the Rafah crossing. Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called Hamas’ demands for a complete Israeli troop withdrawal from Gaza “extreme.”

The war was triggered by Hamas’ attack on southern Israel on October 7 in which 1,200 people were killed and 250 were taken hostage.

Israel’s bombardment and ground offensives in Gaza have killed more than 34,800 Palestinians, mostly women and children, according to the Gaza Health Ministry, which does not distinguish between civilians and combatants in its figures.

Much of Gaza has been destroyed and some 80% of Gaza’s population has been driven from their homes.
