Some 50 right-wing activists have assembled near Attorney General Gali Baharav-Miara’s north Tel Aviv home for their first police-approved protest there since the war broke out.

It was unclear if Baharav-Miara was at home at the time.

Neighbors upset by the noise say this is the second such protest since October 7, with the first taking place yesterday, “by surprise.” A police officer confirmed that a request to hold last night’s protest was not approved.

The neighbors said that earlier demonstrations against Baharav-Miara’s opposition to the government’s planned judicial overhaul had taken place about 100 yards farther away from her home.

Prominent radical Likud activist Rami Ben-Yehuda is on site live-streaming the event on X, telling viewers online that she “supports Hamas.”

Ben-Yehuda goes full-on conspiratorial, accusing Baharav-Miata of protecting a 150-strong ring of pedophiles embedded in her office. Though it is unclear what he was referring to, Ben-Yehuda’s pronouncement echoes the US rightwing QAnon conspiracy theory.

Neighbors and protesters shout insults at each other. Ben-Yehuda tells an uninvolved passerby to “return to his dog and cat and to go f**k himself,” invoking a stereotype about Tel Avivians who often own pets.

The demonstration ends at 11 p.m., in accordance with the city’s noise restrictions.
