Israel judicial reforms

Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets of Tel Aviv and other cities across the occupied territories against the Israeli cabinet’s judicial reforms. The rallies were held despite Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu putting the controversial reforms on hold a month ago. The rallies were the first major ones since the regime’s parliament officially opened its summer session earlier this week. Protesters blocked central traffic arteries and highways in Tel Aviv. They also gathered outside Israeli President Isaac Herzog’s residence in al-Quds and outside the homes of ministers in Tel Aviv. Similar demonstrations have been held since the judicial overhaul plan was presented in January. It seeks to give the Israeli cabinet greater control over the judiciary.
