Ministers heckled at ceremonies across country

Aside from National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir, other cabinet members are heckled at Memorial Day ceremonies around Israel.

Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, appearing at a military cemetery in Tel Aviv, is met with a silent protest by three people holding signs, one of which reads “Their blood is on your hands.” One person also yells at him to quit, according to an activist posting on social media.

In Netanya, Intelligence Minister Gila Gamliel speaks as a woman in the crowd yells at her to go home. The protester briefly argues with a man in a military uniform who appears to be providing security, as others in the crowd try to tell her to be quiet.

In Rehovot’s military cemetery, protesters yell “shame” and other chants at Housing Minister Yitzhak Goldknopf as he speaks. Others try to quiet the demonstrators, leading to arguments, including some which turn physical, according to a local report.

In Holon, an older woman is seen yelling angrily at Transportation Minister Miri Regev as a ceremony ends, calling her a “piece of shit,” among other things.
