Israelis continue to protest against the proposed judicial reforms.

Continuing protests in Tel Aviv, West Jerusalem and Haifa have entered their 16th week. Another protest against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took place on Saturday.

Police closed roads in various cities, especially in Tel Aviv.


As Anadolu reported, in recent weeks, hundreds of Israeli reservist soldiers, including reservist pilots, refused to join training or show up for duty in protest against plans for judicial overhaul.

While the government argues that the plans would enhance democracy and restore the balance between the legislative, executive and judicial powers, the opposition views them as an attempt to reduce the powers of the judicial authority in favor of the executive.

Last month, Netanyahu, who is on trial for corruption, bowed to pressure and announced a temporary halt to the judicial overhaul plans.
