Police begin to use water cannons as they attempt to clear protesters from the main highway between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

Law enforcement officials say they are gradually opening up the area to traffic.

Earlier this week, a number of senior physicians asked police to stop using the crowd dispersal technique after a number of protesters were seriously wounded.

The letter characterized water cannons as “weapons” that cause “exceptional and serious” damage by spraying water at high pressure.
