Some of the demonstrators urged Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to authorize a ground offensive in Gaza. "I do not fear a ground offensive, even though my brother serves in the army and is currently on the border with Gaza," one of them said.


Tomer Vaknin, who helped organize the demonstration, said "we are not willing to go on living this way. There is a sense that people are accepting the situation, and we can't have that."


Twenty rockets were fired toward Beersheba in four separate barrages Tuesday morning. A building in the city sustained a direct hit, another rocket damaged a bus and a third projectile caused damaged to vehicles and buildings. There were no reports of injury in the attacks.
