Dozens of people demonstrated, Thursday evening outside the national government complex in Tel Aviv, against next week's scheduled release of security prisoners as part of the agreement with the Palestinian Authority for renewing diplomatic talks. A number of demonstrators blocked the street, chanting "Jewish blood is not a gesture." Traffic police managed to clear the street, but only after a few minutes.
Against the backdrop of the latest terror activity, demonstrators said, "Today we say to government ministers who supported the release of terrorists, 'Shame on you. Look us in the eye and tell us what you have accomplished until today with the release of the terrorists... so that you will be received by [Palestinian Authority Chairman] Abu Mazen? We are releasing and they are massacring us."
