Thousands of people have demonstrated in Tel Aviv against the extension of a truce between the Israeli military and Hamas in Gaza.

Many are from southern Israeli towns along the border where rockets from Gaza often land.

They say the Egyptian proposal to secure a more permanent truce threatens their security.

Al Jazeera's Kimberly Halkett reports from Tel Aviv.
