Police block the entrance to the Ayalon Highway, preventing protesters from entering and disrupting traffic.
Earlier, several hundred protesters marched toward the highway, but stopped short of blocking the Ayalon in an apparent attempt to avoid conflict with police.
Instead, they rallied in the middle of Menachem Begin Street, also a key highway. And after around twenty minutes they turned around and headed back toward Habima Square.
There are no attempts currently to block the highway by protesters.
