Social protest rally held in Tel Aviv, other cities

Some 20,000 people gathered in Tel Aviv for Israel’s first social protest in two months.

Saturday night’s gathering, joined simultaneously by smaller protests in Jerusalem, Haifa and Kiryat Shemona, among others, attracted a fraction of the 450,000 people across Israel that demonstrated at the end of the summer.

A protest in Beersheba was canceled due to rocket fire from Gaza.

The Tel Aviv rally began on Rothschild Boulevard, where the first and largest tent city from last summer’s protests was located, and moved to Rabin Square.
