Misbar’s Analysis

Misbar investigated the circulating footage and found the claim to be misleading.

The blood seen in the video is fake as it was deliberately poured onto the street by protesters.

Anti-Netanyahu Protesters Poured Out Fake Blood

The Times of Israel reported that clashes erupted between demonstrators and law enforcement as they endeavored to disperse the protest outside the Histadrut workers union headquarters.

Both police officers and protesters slip and stumble amidst the scuffle, as a result of the fake blood that had been spilled on the street earlier in the demonstration.

Tens of thousands of Israeli Protesters Call for Hostage Deal

Thousands of Israelis gathered in protest against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, calling for action on a Gaza hostage deal. The demonstrations in Tel Aviv and other urban centers followed the recovery of Elad Katzir's body by the IOF. 

According to local media, demonstrators vocalized demands for immediate elections and expressed remorse with chants like "elections now" and "Elad, we're sorry." Subsequently, law enforcement intervened to disperse the crowd in Tel Aviv.

Anti-government demonstrators, along with families of hostages detained in Gaza, joined the protests. They expressed their dissatisfaction with the government's inability to secure the release of approximately 130 hostages still held in Gaza by Hamas. 

Organizers estimated the crowd at 100,000 in Tel Aviv, while other estimates suggested around 45,000 attendees. These protests were part of a series of large-scale demonstrations calling for Prime Minister Netanyahu's resignation due to anger over his failure to secure the release of the remaining hostages. In a distressing incident, a car drove into the Tel Aviv protest, injuring five people. Police reported that they arrested the driver.
