Thousands of family members and supporters of hostages held in Gaza marched in Jerusalem, criticizing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's handling of the war with Hamas and urging the government to do more to bring their loved ones home. The march followed a five-day trek from Tel Aviv and marked the largest protest on behalf of the hostages since they were taken by Hamas in October. Israeli leaders have set two objectives - to crush Hamas and to bring the hostages home. Some hostage families fear that the military offensive endangers their loved ones, while Israeli leaders argue that military pressure on Hamas may lead to hostage releases in a potential cease-fire deal.
