Some 10,000 pro-government demonstrators gather outside the Supreme Court in Jerusalem ahead of the petition on the judicial overhaul legislation.

The numbers are lower than at previous pro-government demonstrations and far lower than the mass anti-overhaul rallies held in Tel Aviv every week.

Minister of National Missions Orit Strock addresses the crowd, apologizing to them for the government not managing to push through the reform.

“You are not supposed to be here, you are supposed to be sitting at home. But there are people here who do not know how to accept the decision of the majority. They shout democracy, but actually demand a dictatorship,” she says.
