Ethiopian-Israeli march reaches Rabin Square, 8 arrested in protests

Tel Aviv’s Kaplan and Ibn Gabirol streets, both main thoroughfares in the city’s center, are reopened after the Ethiopian-Israeli march reaches Rabin Square.

Some 1,000 people are now demonstrating against discrimination and police violence in the square, under signs reading, “Mom, please make sure I’m not the next victim.”

Dozens more are protesting at Poleg Junction in Netanya, and another small protest is under way in Petah Tikva.

Six protesters are detained in Netanya and two in Petah Tikva for disturbing public order, police say.
