Police arrested 76 anti-government protesters during demonstrations in and around Tel Aviv throughout the day, police say in a statement.
73 of them have been released under restrictive conditions, according to the police. The remaining three detainees will be brought before a judge tomorrow morning, police say.
This evening, police say they arrested nine anti-government protesters on Menachem Begin Boulevard in central Tel Aviv for “disturbing public order,” police say.
Demonstrators waged a “day of national paralysis” throughout the day to protest the Netanyahu government’s plans to overhaul the judiciary, politicize the appointment of judges, and restrict the power of the High Court of Justice.
