The Hadash party on Thursday called on the public to join in demonstrations throughout the country in opposition to Operation Pillar of Defense in Gaza.
Hadash MK Dov Henin stated: "Stop the killing, stop the bloodshed immediately." He added: "One bombing leads to another, leading to more and more people being injured in Gaza and Israel."
Henin called on the government to reach an "immediate cease-fire" and announce the opening of "genuine negotiations and an agreement with the Palestinians."
Demonstrations were held in Tel Aviv, Haifa and Jerusalem on Thursday night.
