Mounted police and a water cannon are sent in to try and clear the Ayalon Highway in Tel Aviv.
Police warn the hundreds of demonstrators who have closed down the major thoroughfare in both directions that they will use force if they do not disperse.
The demonstrators are waving flags, chanting, and refusing to leave.
Riders are trying to corral protesters while jets of high-pressure water are used to try to push others back up an off-ramp.
