Mounted police attempt to disperse protesters in Tel Aviv who have gathered outside Beit Jabotinsky, home to the Likud party headquarters, and several anti-government demonstrators are removed and detained following a temporary road blockage on King George Street.

In video footage, police can be seen riding into the crowds, shoving protesters aside with their horses as they do. Several people appear to be pushed around by police while other protesters step in to try and stop police from hurting those being pushed.

Among the protesters is Labor lawmaker Gilad Kariv, who shouts to mounted police to stay off the sidewalks, and warns that their deployment is illegal.

Some protesters carry signs calling for early elections, and others hold banners calling for an end to the fighting in Gaza.
