A resident of the central city of Netanya is detained for an investigation, on suspicion of encouraging violence against protesters on social media.

In an online post shared ahead of protest events, he wrote, “I’m ready for tonight,” alongside an image of what appeared to be a Molotov cocktail.

Protests against the judicial overhaul have been marred by sporadic violence against demonstrators.

On Monday, a car plowed through a rally in Tel Aviv, injuring several people.
