1,000 demonstrators marching from Gaza to Sderot

Around one thousand people were marching from the Gaza Strip border toward Sderot on Wednesday afternoon, as part of a day-long event to show solidarity with the area's residents. The IDF was securing the event. Upon arrival in Sderot, the group planned to hold a large demonstration, with MKs, reserve generals and other public figures in attendance. The protest was organized by the Sderot Security Forum, and was meant to raise the issue of the security in the area to the national agenda.
