Ayelet Katzir, a leading figure in the Family’s Tent group of activists who lost family members in the October 7 Hamas massacres, is released from police detention, several hours after being detained at an anti-government protest outside the Knesset.

Several dozen people participated in the protest to demand that the government resign due to the military and intelligence failures that enabled Hamas to carry out its October 7 atrocities.

Katzir was detained and questioned at the Moriah Police Station in Jerusalem before being released.

Labor MK Naama Lazimi drove to the police station to protest Katzir’s arrest, describing it as “an embarrassing and outrageous arrest.”

The police said one woman was arrested for blocking the access road to the Knesset and ramming her sign into an MK’s car, Ynet reported.
