Thousands of protesters are gathering in Tel Aviv for two anti-government protests in the coastal city, one on Kaplan Street and the other at Habima Square.

The demonstrations mark the fifth week that opponents of Benjamin Netanyahu’s government will take to the streets, protesting Justice Minister Yariv Levin’s proposals to shake up the judiciary by severely curbing the High Court of Justice’s judicial review powers and cementing political control over the appointment of judges.
