At least seven protesters were arrested tonight in Tel Aviv during a protest calling for the release of the hostages and new elections.
Some protesters blocked part of the Ayalon Highway heading south and were detained, police say.
The protesters set bonfires ablaze and blocked the highway’s southern lane for some time.
The road has since been cleared and reopened for traffic, police say.
At least five other protesters received fines for “obstructing traffic,” according to the police.
