As hundreds of anti-overhaul demonstrators rally outside the US embassy branch office in Tel Aviv, the White House urges Israeli authorities “to protect and respect the right of peaceful assembly.”

“It is clear there is significant debate and discussion in Israel on the proposed plan. Such debates are a healthy part of a vibrant democracy,” a National Security Council spokesperson says.
