Police use water cannons against anti-overhaul protesters blocking the Ayalon Highway in Tel Aviv
There are no immediate reports of injuries.
Mounted police are also brought in as part of attempts to clear the thoroughfare.
Earlier, water cannons were deployed in the northern city of Haifa. Police say they used the measure to clear a road blocked by protesters.
The controversial crowd-control measure has been used on a number of occasions against people protesting the government’s legislative package that will — among other things — allow the Knesset to override court decisions with the barest majority, preemptively shield laws from judicial oversight, and put the selection of judges in the hands of coalition politicians.
