The Knesset’s Constitution Committee discussed this morning (Tuesday) legislation that will allow restrictions on the demonstrations as part of the measures to curb the spread of the corona virus.

Shortly before the debate, the MKs withdrew from the Likud the reservation that sought to prevent the demonstrations even after the end of the closure. During the debate, all the thousands of reservations submitted by the opposition were removed.

Simultaneously with the heated debate in the committee, dozens of left-wing protesters protested outside the Knesset. The police detained for questioning a suspect who attacked one of the policewomen with a stick and wounded her in the lower body and in her hand.

Jerusalem municipality inspectors who took down signs hung at the site were attacked by some of the protesters by various means and sticks. Due to the protest, the Knesset area was closed to traffic.

“The law has not yet been passed and protesters have already been arrested outside, in the Knesset, in violence and in violation of the law,” said MK Eli Avidar (Yisrael Beiteinu) during a discussion of the Constitution Committee.

The chairman of the right-wing faction, MK Ayelet Shaked, attacked: “The Nissenkorn-Netanyahu government links the limitation of demonstrations to a general closure and pushes tens of thousands into unemployment. Nissenkorn is not willing to restrict demonstrations without a full closure. Netanyahu is not willing to not restrict demonstrations. “Everything so that there will be no demonstrations. The connection must be severed.”
