Anti-government demonstrators gathered in Tel Aviv on Tuesday evening, July 29. Reportedly, demonstrators rallied outside the home of Public Security Minister Amir Ohana on Yigal Alon Street, before moving to Ayalon Freeway. Police intervened and moved the protesters on, clearing the road to traffic. Currently, there have been no reports of clashes or arrests.

Further protests over the issue are likely to take place in the coming days and weeks.


Amir Ohana has faced criticism after allegedly supporting harsher intervention from police towards anti-government demonstrators.

Protests have been reported throughout Israel, particularly in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, in recent weeks over the government's handling of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. Anger over the issue has been compounded by pre-existing anti-Netanyahu sentiment, with the prime minister facing three criminal cases over alleged corruption.


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.
