A handful of supporters of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the government’s plans to overhaul the judiciary hold a counter-protest as thousands demonstrate outside the President’s Residence in Jerusalem.

The protesters shout at the anti-overhaul demonstrators: “Bolsheviks go back to where you came from.”

At the rally against the judicial overhaul, the crowd shouts “shame” as speakers mention Justice Minister Yariv Levin, Constitution Committee head MK Simcha Rothman — who are leading the overhaul push — as well as far-right National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir.
