Protesters lower Israeli flag to half staff at IDF headquarters in Tel Aviv

Protesters against the overhaul have lowered the national flag to half staff outside the Israel Defense Forces headquarters in Tel Aviv.

Reservists have warned they will stop volunteering for duty if the coalition unilaterally passes laws to curtail the judiciary.

Defense Minister Yoav Gallant reportedly held an emergency meeting this week with IDF chief Lt. Gen. Herzi Halevi and other top officers to discuss the possible fallout if military reservists — particularly pilots — stop showing up.
