Police begin to close main roads in central Tel Aviv ahead of major anti-government rallies that will be held in the coastal city this evening.

Tens of thousands of people are expected at the main protest on Kaplan Street.

Several more demonstrations are anticipated in other cities around the country, including Jerusalem, Haifa, Herzliya, and Beersheba.

Opponents of Benjamin Netanyahu’s government have been taking to the streets weekly to protest Justice Minister Yariv Levin’s proposals to shake up the judiciary by severely curbing the High Court of Justice’s judicial review powers and cementing political control over the appointment of judges.
