Police say 33 arrested as Tel Aviv protesters tried to block road; all routes now open

Police say that 33 protesters were arrested during demonstrations in Tel Aviv this evening calling for new elections and the return of the remaining hostages held in captivity in Gaza, hours after the military announced that four hostages were rescued alive from central Gaza’s Nuseirat camp.

The police statement adds that all roads near the protest have now been opened to traffic.

It says that while most demonstrators attended the preapproved rally and then dispersed, some stayed and marched along Begin and Kaplan roads, “while trying to block a traffic route.

“Police forces at the scene dispersed the protesters from the road, while employing riot control methods and arresting disrupters of public order,” the statement added.
