Relatives of Israelis held hostage by Hamas in Gaza protested by entering the Israeli parliament. About 20 people entered there during a parliamentary committee meeting on Monday. They shouted slogans demanding more efforts to bring back their loved ones.

A woman burst into tears during the Finance Committee of Israel’s Parliament Knesset. Three of his relatives are still hostages in the hands of Hamas and told the committee members, “I want at least one of these three to be brought back alive.”

Some of the relatives of the hostages also had papers containing various demands. One of them read, ‘You cannot sit here while they (hostages) are dying there (Gaza)’. Another read, ‘Free them now, now, now.’

During the attack on Israel on October 7 last year, Hamas took more than 250 Israeli hostages from there to Gaza. Hamas has released hundreds of hostages under the three-phase seven-day ceasefire agreement. However, Hamas still holds approximately 130 Israeli hostages.

Israel has been attacking Gaza for three and a half months after the attack by Hamas. However, hundreds of hostages have not been released yet. The incident of protesting in the parliament is proof of the growing anger and dissatisfaction among the relatives of the hostages towards the Israeli government.

Earlier, relatives of the hostages protested outside the residence of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the parliament building. They urged the Israeli government to be more proactive in demanding the return of the hostages from these demonstrations.

Eli Stevie is one of those protesting in front of the Israeli Prime Minister’s residence. His son Idan is still being held hostage by Hamas in Gaza. “We will not leave him (Netanyahu) until the hostages return,” said Eli Stevie, who took part in the protest.

Meanwhile, Israel said that at least 27 of the Israelis taken hostage by Hamas have died. Some of them were killed by Israeli forces in Gaza. Concern is growing among the relatives whether those who are still alive will also die in this way or not.

Qatar, Egypt and the United States are trying to free the hostages. But Israel says the attacks will continue until Hamas is eliminated. Meanwhile, Hamas wants the release of all Palestinians in exchange for the release of the hostages. The adamant position of the two sides does not sound like any hope of mediation.
