Relatives of Hamas held hostages storm into Israel parliament

From Morning Report, 6:10 am on 23 January 2024

Relatives of hostages held by Hamas militants in Gaza have stormed into a finance committee meeting at Israel's parliament.

Family members yelled 'shame on you' and 'you will not sit here, while our children are dying there', protesting the committee deliberating while their children are still in captivity.

The protest highlights growing domestic dissent about the war, now in its fourth month.

It comes as Palestinians in southern Gaza say the Israeli bombardment is the most intense they have experienced since the war began.
