Isaac Herzog Urges Immediate Halt of Judicial Reforms
Israeli President Isaac Herzog calls on the government to halt judicial reforms "for the sake of unity."
Israeli media reported last night that over 600,000 Israeli settlers took to the streets on Sunday to protest against the judicial reforms introduced by the government of Israeli occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, after Israeli occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dismissed Security Minister Yoav Gallant.
Israeli President Isaac Herzog, urged the government to halt the adoption of judicial reform immediately.
Herzog said “We have seen very difficult scenes tonight. I appeal to the Prime Minister, the members of the government, and members of the coalition … For the sake of the unity of the people of Israel, for the sake of the responsibility we are obliged to, I call on you to stop the legislative process immediately.
‘Israel’ is bleeding, army on path to disintegration: Israeli media
Israeli media reported on Sunday that thousands of demonstrators blocked the “Ayalon Highway” in “Tel Aviv” in both directions and that Israeli police vehicles repeatedly attempted to ram protestors.
Also outraged by the sacking of the security minister, hundreds of angry settlers gathered outside Netanyahu’s house, as Israeli occupation police attempted to disperse them using water cannons.
Protesters chanting anti-government slogans also marched from Netanyahu’s home on Gaza Street toward the Israeli Knesset and the Prime Minister’s Office in occupied Al-Quds, the Israeli media said.
News outlets said that an Israeli vehicle tried to run over a group of demonstrators in “Tel Aviv”, while Al Mayadeen correspondent also reported another attempt to run over demonstrators in occupied Akka.
Israeli media revealed earlier that Security Unit 730 evacuated Netanyahu’s family to the Shin Bet headquarters in occupied Al-Quds over fear for their lives as demonstrators stormed the barriers around the PM’s house.
“Israel’s security has become in clear and immediate danger, and all leaders of the security system must say this out loud,” the media outlet warned, adding that “there is complete chaos near Netanyahu’s house, and the situation seems to have gotten out of control.”
Former officials in the Israeli security establishment said that Gallatn’s dismissal is “a big step on the path to dismantling the [Isaeli] army,” noting that “Israel is bleeding.”
Shin Bet today committed one of its biggest security failures in its history on Gaza Street in occupied Al-Quds (Netanyahu’s residence), the media said.
Avi Benayahu, a former spokesman for the Israeli army, was even more fearful of the situation.
“This is the darkest eve in Israel’s history,” he said, describing the ongoing mayhem.
