Dampened by this weekend’s deadly Jerusalem terror attacks, an anti-government protest on Tel Aviv’s Kaplan Street is already winding down.

Channel 12 news, citing police estimates, says 30,000 people showed up.

Last week, the street drew over 100,000 Israelis to protest the government’s judicial reform plan, which protesters say is a threat to democracy. A fraction of that number was estimated to arrive this weekend.
