As the crowds begin to thin out at Tel Aviv’s Kaplan Street, police start to work to open the road.

Rather than deploying water cannons or mounted officers, police cars and motorbikes begin to drive around the area, asking protesters to move to the sidewalks.

After a few minutes, police simply open sections of the road to traffic as the demonstrators drift away.

The final section of the road remains closed, with a few dozen protesters remaining there.
