“I don’t know what else to do. I don’t have a solution, but it’s not my job to get a solution. It’s my job to demand my family back” said Amit Zach, the nephew of 72-year-old Adina Moshe, who was taken hostage by Hamas on 7 October.
Relatives of Israelis being held hostage have begun a 40-mile march from Tel Aviv to Benjamin Netanyahu’s office in Jerusalem to demand the government does more to secure their release.
“I and my family also don’t feel like we’re in good hands. We don’t feel like we get enough information. We fell into the darkness. We want answers” said Zach as he marched.
The families aim to march over five days, camping in tents and arriving outside Netanyahu’s office on Saturday. At the start of the march on Tuesday, people fought back tears as they made impassioned pleas for the release of their loved ones.
An estimated 1,200 people were killed and more than 240 hostages were taken when Hamas militants stormed southern Israeli towns and kibbutzim on 7 October.
