Haaretz photographer detained at anti-government rally in Tel Aviv said released an hour later

Police have released a photographer for the Haaretz daily who was detained last night at an anti-government rally in Tel Aviv last night.

Hebrew media reports that Itay Ron was released around an hour after he was arrested.

Videos posted to social media show the photographer being grabbed by an officer and pushed towards a bus of detainees, despite appeals from passersby that he is a journalist.

Ron was one of 12 people arrested at the demonstration last night, according to police, for alleged violations of public order, including blocking roads and demonstrating past the permitted time.
