Israel set for 13th Saturday night of anti-overhaul protests around the country

Opponents of the government’s overhaul plan are holding their 13th straight Saturday of nationwide protests this evening — the first since the pause in legislation announced on Monday by the prime minister.

Though talks are ongoing, few expect them to yield an agreement. Right-wing backers of the revamp held their first two major demonstrations this week — on Monday in Jerusalem and on Thursday in Tel Aviv. Each drew tens of thousands.

It remains to be seen whether opponents, who were able to bring hundreds of thousands to Tel Aviv’s Kaplan Street in recent weeks, will be able to maintain such attendance today.
