Despite the police ban on public gatherings, several hundred anti-war activists took to the streets in Tel-Aviv on Saturday to say ‘no’ to the continuation of Israel’s bloody military operation in Gaza.

There are conflicting reports on the demonstration’s turnout, with Reuters reporting 150 people attending.

However, Israeli +972 web magazine said that “roughly 500 non-aligned activists flooded Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square.”

Protesters chanted slogans such as “Stop the massacre,” “Free Gaza,” “Funds to welfare not to war,” “Build more classrooms not more bombs” as well as “Gaza children want to live.”

Two dozen right-wing demonstrators staged a counter-protest nearby, but there were no reports of any clashes between the two groups.
Police spokesman, Micky Rosenfeld, said that none of those, who participated in the illegal demonstration, were arrested.

Earlier, the Israeli police banned public gatherings in cities targeted by rockets fired from Gaza, citing military restrictions.
