TEL AVIV: Protestors in Tel Aviv, Israel on Saturday night held signs and banners calling for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to face corruption charges and for hostages to be freed.

Family members of captives were among the protestors who gathered outside The Museum of Modern Art, in a protest demonstration focused on the release of captives.

Meanwhile, the Palestinian Authority foreign ministry said that Israel is targeting the UN agency that helps Palestinian refugees to widen the scope of displacement and change the demographic character of the Gaza. In a statement, the Palestinian Authority foreign ministry said Israel is attempting to expel Palestinian people from or push them to leave Gaza.

The development comes as Gaza Health Ministry said that more than 21,672 Palestinian people have been killed in ongoing Israeli air and ground attacks since October 7 in the besieged Gaza Strip. In the past 24 hours alone, 165 Gazans were killed, with a total of 56,165 others wounded in the ongoing Israeli aggression in the region.

The devastating toll of the Israeli attacks has drawn attention internationally, with the American Wall Street Journal stating that the destruction in Gaza is comparable in scale to the most devastating warfare in modern history. The report highlighted that, by mid-December, Israel had dropped 29,000 bombs, munitions, and shells on the besieged enclave, resulting in the destruction or damage of nearly 70% of Gaza’s homes.
