Eight protesters have been arrested so far in Jerusalem, say police, though all but one have already been released.
A Jerusalem police spokesman says that one demonstrator was arrested outside the Supreme Court for “attacking a police officer.”
Separately, seven people were detained, questioned and then released over a protest at the offices of the Kohelet think tank — a leading force in the government’s judicial shakeup plan — which included them placing sandbags and barbed wire at the office entrance in the Givat Shaul neighborhood.
In Tel Aviv, 15 protesters were detained as police cleared the Ayalon Highway which was blocked by hundreds of demonstrators. Though police brought a water cannon to the site, they ultimately did not use it.
