Protesters broke through police cordons and gathered outside the home of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. This is reported Walla on Sunday, March 26th.
After the demonstrators broke through the cordon, clashes with the police followed. As noted, dozens of people were arrested on suspicion of disturbing the peace, writes Ynet.
Earlier in the day, demonstrations erupted in Israel following the resignation of Defense Minister Yoav Galant, who did not support judicial reform. Protesters in Tel Aviv gathered near Kiriya, blocking the Kaplan intersection and disrupting traffic.
Protests have been going on in Israel since the beginning of the year. They are against the new government of Benjamin Netanyahu and his judicial reform, which will give the Knesset (Israel’s legislature) more control over the judiciary. The Knesset will have the power to overrule Supreme Court decisions on laws and government decisions, and to appoint its judges.
Organizers of protests against judicial reform in Israel on March 25 said about 630,000 people took part in nationwide rallies, nearly 300,000 of them at the main demonstration in Tel Aviv.
When trying to disperse the crowd, which blocked the Ayalon highway in Tel Aviv, the police used water cannons. More than 40 people were detained.
