Dozens of residents of Gaza's border communities set up tents on Rothschild Avenue in Tel Aviv late Thursday to protest the lack of personal security in the south of the country over Hamas rockets and incendiary balloons, Haaretz reported.

Blue and white leader Benny Gantz spoke to them and promised that when he is prime minister "you will be what I value, not Captain George."

Gantz was referring to a man who spends much of his time writing on social media on behalf of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu using the name of Captain George. After many accused Captain George and other pro-Likud accounts of being bots, or not a real person, Netanyahu introduced the world to the real Captain George.

Gantz also said that a government should give citizens two things "decisions and truth", and added that the current government is afraid of criticism and "Facebook trolls."

Gantz meant people who write offensive stuff online because they are dubbed trolls by online users.
