Thousands of Israelis join anti government protests

Thousands of Israelis took to the streets in Jerusalem to protest against the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and demand new elections. The protests have intensified as the war in Gaza continues and anger grows over the government's handling of Israeli hostages held by Hamas. Netanyahu's right-wing coalition faced large protests last year, and he has ruled out early elections. Surveys show that most Israelis blame Netanyahu for security failures that led to a devastating attack by Hamas fighters. Ultra Orthodox Jewish demonstrators have also protested against the removal of exemptions from military service.
