Police ask anti-Netanyahu protesters to get out of the street

After exhibiting unusually restrained behavior during this evening’s anti-Netanyahu rally outside the Prime Minister’s Residence in Jerusalem, police announce they want to open the streets to traffic and ask protesters to get off the road and onto the sidewalk.

Protesters remain in the street and chant “you will not be police chief” to Jerusalem police commander Doron Yedid, who is widely seen as vying for the position of commissioner.

Thousands of protesters still remain in Paris Square
