Five leftist protesters were arrested Saturday night at a demonstration in Tel Aviv against the IDF's operation in Gaza. The marchers attempted to enter the Ministry of Defense compound but were prevented from advancing by police. One demonstrator was injured.
Protesters said that the Gaza operation would not contribute to the security of the country. "No one can say that a massacre of Gaza residents will protect the residents of Sderot and Ashkelon," one of the protesters told a reporter from the Hebrew-language newspaper Haaretz.
