‘Won’t let Israel be destroyed,’ opposition chiefs say ahead of 1st votes on judicial overhaul

The heads of several opposition factions announce they will give a joint press conference tomorrow at the Knesset, where the coalition is due to begin holding votes on parts of its proposals to radically shakeup the judiciary.

“This is a time of emergency. We won’t let the State of Israel be destroyed,” the leaders of Yesh Atid, National Unity, Yisrael Beytenu and Labor say in a statement.

A civil worker strike has been called for tomorrow to protest the government’s plans, with demonstrators set to rally in Jerusalem outside the Knesset.
