Some five hundred protesters demonstrated against the cease-fire agreement with Hamas in a demonstration organized by Habayit Hayehudi at the Beersheba municipality plaza on Thursday night.

Residents of Beersheba, Rishon Lezion and Ashkelon attended the demonstration which comprised people from across the religious spectrum as well as secular Israelis, protesting under the banner "strong against Hamas." 

Deputy mayor of Beersheba and Habayit Hayehudi candidate Avi Wertzman delivered the opening speech, criticizing Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman for his remarks that he preferred to end the conflict with Gaza quickly due to upcoming elections.

Wertzman called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to respond strongly to any provocation from Gaza.
