The key highway between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem reopens to traffic after police clear protesters from the road.

Police used water cannons and dragged demonstrators away from the highway.

One woman suffered a head injury when she was hit in the head by high-pressured water from a water cannon.

According to Hebrew-language reports, Route 1 may be blocked again later in the day.
