Clashes between protesters and police began in Israel KXan 36 Daily News

Date: July 18, 2024 Time: 13:59:19

When news broke that the government’s law to limit the powers of the judiciary and test the “reasonableness” of politicians’ decisions was passed in the Knesset, thousands of protesters outside the Supreme Court building began chanting “Shame” and “Democracy or rebellion.”

Calls were made from a big stage to continue the fight against the government and its legislation to the end, and also to inform their friends about the protest.

As darkness fell, the congregation began lighting bonfires on Kaplan Street in Tel Aviv. “We will not give up,” the crowd chants as black smoke fills the air, a Times of Israel correspondent reports from the scene. Police clash with protesters at various locations in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

Video circulating on social media shows police throwing burning boards at protesters as they clear a road near Kaplan Street. Police issued a statement saying protesters in Tel Aviv were throwing water bottles and sand at officers. Many protesters insisted that their fight against the current government’s program to reform the judiciary was just beginning. Despite the peaceful atmosphere of the protesters, a police water cannon at one point fired at several protesters who were standing peacefully in front of the Knesset, but behind metal barriers, while the publication’s reporter repeatedly fell under the spray of water during the recording of the story.

Clashes between police and protesters in Israel are not as violent as, for example, in France, due to the fact that local law enforcement officers have a wide arsenal of methods and means to suppress an excited crowd. Water cannon, tear gas and mounted police forces are often used in combination for this purpose.
