The 'Hostages and Missing Families Forum,' a collective of families, relatives, and friends of the individuals missing and kidnapped during the October 7 attack, is making a fervent appeal to the Israeli war cabinet. Their plea is clear: they are urging the Israeli war cabinet not to agree to a ceasefire until all 242 kidnapped individuals have been released.
The war cabinet, composed of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Yuav Gallant, and minister without portfolio and former chief of armed staff Benny Gantz, holds the key to decisions regarding a potential ceasefire.
The members of the 'Hostages and Missing Families Forum' are staging a continuous presence at the entrance to the HaKirya base in Tel Aviv, adjacent to 'Hostages Square.' They have committed to remaining in tents until all the hostages are safely returned home.
To further emphasize their demand for immediate action in bringing the hostages back, the forum is organizing a rally scheduled for 8 PM on Saturday. They are calling on every Israeli citizen to come and show their support and make their voices heard. The assembly will begin at 7 PM, and the rally will commence at 8 PM on Sha'ul HaMelech Street, Tel Aviv. The lineup for the rally will be shared in the coming hours.
