Hundreds of people are protesting tonight (Wednesday) against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a number of centers across the country. This is after the Knesset approved the restrictions on demonstrations during the closure, which have not yet entered into force. In Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, the demonstrators are blocking roads and confronting the police. The police warned the demonstrators that they would be fined for disrupting traffic if they refused to go back to the sidewalk.

Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit issued an opinion today stating that although the government approved the restriction of demonstrations to a distance of 1,000 meters from the house, they have not yet entered into force because the Ministry of Justice has yet to draft the updated regulations that will apply. The demonstrators who understood the meaning – wanted to take advantage of the last opportunity to hold demonstrations more than a kilometer from the house and hold a demonstration in front of the Prime Minister’s residence in Balfour and a procession in Tel Aviv.
The demonstrators in Jerusalem temporarily blocked Gaza Street in front of the prime minister’s house, as well as on the streets in central Tel Aviv. In Jerusalem, the police returned to the demonstrators: “You are blocking the road, the demonstration is illegal. If you do not clear the road – we will have to give you reports.” The police then put the protesters on the sidewalk and they call them in response, “There is no traffic on the road – you make us huddle in place to allow us to meet the distance of two meters.”
“Bibi, even if you limit the demonstrations to one meter and lower the shelter on the whole country, you will not silence us. We will demonstrate against you anytime and anywhere until you leave.”
The Movement for the Quality of Government petitioned the High Court today against restricting the demonstrations, claiming that this was a serious and disproportionate violation of freedom of expression. Judge Neil Handel ruled that the state must respond to the petition by October 7.
