Police say they are deploying additional forces to central Tel Aviv ahead of major protests later this evening.
Several roads near the city’s iconic Habima Square will be shuttered from 6 p.m. The road closures will appear on the Waze navigation application, police say.
Police on Thursday warned against potential unrest during the protests.
According to the Haaretz daily, police also placed security around the home of Knesset speaker and Likud MK Amir Ohana, who lives near the square.
The rallies are expected to begin at around 7 p.m. according to the organizers.
The demonstrations will mark the second week that opponents of Benjamin Netanyahu’s government will take to the streets, protesting 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.
