About 200 protesters demonstrated in front of the Kirya IDF headquarters in Tel Aviv and in front of OC Southern Command in Beersheba on Sunday night demanding the IDF take responsibility over the Gush Katif evacuees. Several influential rabbis and public figures spoke at the event. The demonstrators carried signs reading "The IDF evacuated, and the IDF shall rehabilitate." The Kirya alert squad tried unsuccessfully to confiscate their cameras. Four months after the disengagement, 78% of the evacuees have not yet found jobs, and 250 families have not yet moved out of the hotels where they have been housed since the evacuation.
