Protests broke out in many Israeli cities after Netanyahu’s decision to remove Defense Minister Yoav Galant from his post.
Unrest in Israel escalated after the dismissal of the defense minister who criticized the judicial reform.
Israel announces “National Paralysis Week” from tomorrow. Doctors, students, teachers and union members will not come to work, demanding that the Netanyahu government cancel judicial reform. This was reported by The Jerusalem Post on Sunday, March 26.
“There is a risk that hospitals will not be able to work in a full-fledged mode due to a lack of staff,” the newspaper notes.
Also, a group of Israeli universities announced a strike from March 27, media writes. Classes will be suspended in protest against judicial reform and the resignation of the defense minister who criticized it.
Protests broke out in many Israeli cities after Netanyahu’s decision to remove Defense Minister Yoav Galant from his post, who called on the head of government to stop judicial reform.
According to YNet, protesters in Tel Aviv blocked the Ayalon highway in both directions, some of them burning tires and erecting barricades. About a thousand more protesters gathered on Azza Street in Jerusalem, where Netanyahu’s residence is located.
On January 4, Justice Minister Yariv Levin presented a plan for judicial reform in Israel. It involves giving the government unlimited control over the appointment of judges and reducing the powers of the Supreme Court. Opponents of the reform accused the authors of the bill of intending to concentrate power in the hands of the ruling party.
