    Israeli women staged a protest outside Jerusalem’s Old City walls Wednesday, calling for peaceful coexistence between Jews and Arabs amid the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip.

    Women Wage Peace activists, many wearing white, called for a halt to the violence, advancing the message of peace and hope.
