Einav Tsengauker, whose son was kidnapped to Gaza during Simchat Torah, blocked last night (Thursday) during a protest in Tel Aviv the car of MK Simcha Rotem from the Religious Zionist party who was on his way to the Kiriya base for a meeting.

"If my son does not come back alive from the Strip in the condition he was kidnapped - his blood will be on your hands. You can wash your hands as much as you want. If you obstruct my son's return home, I will pursue you until my last day".

MK Michal Woldiger, from the Religious Zionist party left the car to hear the families but was verbally attacked, "My son was kidnapped alive, and if he comes back dead, it's on you and Smotrich and on this government. You're not willing to release them at any cost! My child's blood is on you. Tzvi Sukkot wants to build villas on the bodies of those kidnapped in the northern Gaza Strip, on the blood of the surveillance post operators who were dragged into the Strip. You have no shame. You are disgracing the Jewish people".

Meanwhile, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said that the organization's stance in the negotiations will not change even after the assassination of three of his sons. "The Israeli occupation did not eliminate Hamas and will not; it did not bring back the captives, and will not retrieve them except through a respectable deal. Israel - the West's spoiled child - is no longer what it once was, and its image is shattered. What happens in the corridors of diplomacy indicates an unprecedented isolation of Israel".

Sources in the terror organization told the media, "The leadership of Hamas informed the mediators that it is not interested in further discussions on the deal, as long as there is no progress in its demands to end the war and for the army to withdraw from the Gaza Strip".
