Event

The 'Black Flags' anti-government protest movement called for supporters to gather across the country on Thursday, September 17. The group made the call on its social media pages for people to gather at bridges and intersections across the country from 18:00 (local time).

Traffic disruptions are possible in the vicinity of the demonstration due to their location on bridges and intersections. A heightened security presence is also to be expected at protest sites.

Context

Protests have been reported throughout Israel in recent months over the government's handling of the 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.

Advice

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.
