Ayalon reopens as police clear out protesters, but leave water cannon in place

Northbound lanes of the Ayalon Freeway begin moving once again after police clear protesters off the roadway, using mounted officers and a water cannon. Southbound lanes long ago re-opened, along with a section of Highway 4 that had been blocked near Ra’anana.

Though most protesters are making their way home, police are leaving the water cannon in place out of concern that hardcore protesters may remain and attempt to block the Tel Aviv artery again, Channel 12 news reports.

The Ynet news site tweets that one of its photographers was injured in the back by a cavalry officer clearing the roadway.
