Anti-government protesters block traffic on Route 2, close to Tel Aviv

Protesters briefly blocked traffic on Route 2, close to Tel Aviv, as part of a demonstration against the government, Hebrew media reports.

“As hostages are neglected in Gaza, the north is burning and another war threatens to erupt, the government is neglecting all of our lives,” the protesters say in a statement. “This is an emergency situation. It’s clear that Netanyahu is neither fit nor worthy.”

The protesters call for a general strike to be declared across Israel as a way of putting pressure on the government.
