Israel’s Consul General in New York Asaf Zamir announces on Twitter he is quitting, apparently over the judicial overhaul.

In a short tweet, Zamir says: “I quit,” adding an Israeli flag emoji.

The resignation comes amid mass protests across the country, following the ousting of Defense Minister Yoav Gallant by Prime Minister Netanyahu, after the former publicly warned about the consequences of the legal shakeup to the military.
