Thousands of Israelis are taking to the streets to protest against the harsh judicial reforms that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is about to introduce.
Foreign media reports that a large number of people, including doctors, teachers and students, are protesting, announcing Israel’s largest trade union action.
Protesters are taking to the streets against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s proposed judicial reform, and foreign media reports that flights from Israel’s main Tel Aviv airport have also been suspended.
It is alleged that the proposed judicial reform would give the executive the power to appoint judges to the Supreme Court and allow the government to override court decisions on the basis of a simple parliamentary majority.
Meanwhile, since two days ago, people have been protesting against Netanyahu’s dismissal of his defense minister.
