There was a clash between the police and the groups that closed the Ayalon Highway, one of the main arteries of Tel Aviv, to traffic.
In the images circulating on social media, one of the demonstrators asked the police, “What did you do in Masjid al-Aqsa?” It was noteworthy that the slogan was chanted.
While the Haaretz newspaper wrote that 8 protesters were detained, the police said in a statement that two people were detained during the demonstration in Tel Aviv.
While the police intervened against the demonstration, which it declared to be illegal, the demonstrators continued their protests, saying “there is no such thing as an illegal demonstration”.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced yesterday evening that his previously dismissed Defense Minister Yoav Gallant will continue to serve, in a statement he made at the Israeli military headquarters in Tel Aviv regarding the controversial judicial regulation and the latest security situation in the country.
Netanyahu said that Israel is facing a wave of terror and that many incidents took place during the previous government.
Postponed judicial regulation
The “judicial reform”, announced by Israeli Minister of Justice Yariv Levin on January 5, includes regulations that limit the powers of the Supreme Court and allow the government to have a say in judicial appointments.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on March 27 that he was postponing the judicial regulation, which caused mass protests and strikes across the country.
Despite the postponement decision, the Netanyahu government, which did not take a step back, stated that it would bring the controversial regulation back to the Parliament at the beginning of May.
