Copycat ‘freedom convoy’ anti-vaccine protest blocks main highway into Jerusalem

Jerusalem is seeing large traffic jams after a convoy of cars briefly blocked the main highway linking the capital and Tel Aviv, Haaretz reports.

The convoy created the jams by snaking its way to Jerusalem along Route 1 to protest coronavirus vaccine rules, apparently inspired by similar protests against coronavirus policy in Canada and elsewhere.

Some cars are seen with Canadian flags alongside Israeli ones, and signs reading “freedom.”
