- Story Text: The annual Gay Pride Parade has kicked-off in Tel Aviv under heavy security. Some 700 policemen and civil guards were securing the parade, which continued as the militant group Hamas agreed to suspend attacks on Israeli targets.
The Israeli Gay Pride Parade took place in Tel-Aviv on Friday (June 27). The parade started in Rabin Square and continued through central streets in Tel-Aviv, culminating in a festival event.
The parade caused traffic disruption in the city when several main streets were closed to allow the gay community and their supporters to march through the city.
Other parades took place last week in the city of Jerusalem and the city of Haifa.
