Anti-government protesters clashed with security forces in Tel Aviv on Saturday, July 11, as tens of thousands gathered to protest against the lack of a social safety net for workers, as well as the current delay in the promised government funds. The main gathering took place in Rabin Square; however, dozens of protesters blocked HaHasmonaim and Hamisgar-Yitzhak Sadeh roads and the exit to the Ayalon Highway. Further, protesters blocked the intersection in front of the Azrieli towers near Rabin Square. Videos circulated on Saturday evening showing protesters throwing stones at a Discount Bank branch on Ibn Gabirol Street. Three police officers were lightly injured in the clashes, and 19 people were called in for questioning by the authorities, 12 of whom were later arrested. 

Further protests are possible in the coming days. Heightened security measures and localized traffic disruptions are expected around any demonstration site.  


Individuals in Israel are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
