Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu dismissed the Minister of Defense Y o a v G l l a n t for opposing the planned judicial reforms, This led to a large-scale protest, and in the ensuing starry night, tens of thousands of Israelis took to the streets of Telaviv and Jerusalem, and many waved Israeli flags. They also shouted "democracy," blocked streets and bridges, and once broke through security barriers.
It is reported that the protesters lit several fires on the main high-speed road in Telaviv, and the flames burst into the sky, and the pungent black smoke rushed straight into the sky, partially obscuring some landmark skyscrapers in the city. Demonstrations also gathered along high-speed roads.
About six police cars could be seen rushing towards the place where the protesters were, and the real-time picture showed that the security unit fired high-pressure water cannons at the protesters who were still gathering. A police spokesman in the city told the outside world that the police were preparing to disperse the protesters and called on them to leave the area and remove from the road.
On the Sunday before the protests broke out, Israel's political crisis was further dramatized. Netanyahu's office announced in a one-line statement that Y o a v G a l l a n t would be removed from office and that Galante was the first member of the cabinet to call for the suspension of the controversial reform program for the country's legal system.
In a speech on Saturday evening, Galant advocated a halt to judicial reform while Netanyahu was on a formal visit to Britain. Some reserve military personnel have promised to retire from active duty in opposition to these plans. Critics say these plans will undermine the independence of the judiciary. Galante said that continuing to push forward these proposals may threaten Israel's security. After being dismissed, Garrant reiterated on Twitter on Sunday, "The security of Israel has always been, and will always be, my lifelong mission." ”
The remarks of the now dismissed Defense Minister Garrant, a member of Netanyahu's Likud clique, disturbed the Israeli-Israel coalition government, which had been subtly balanced. It is unclear whether these plans can be continued. An official in Netanyahu's office said that the prime minister had lost faith in Galante and added that Galante had not clarified these remarks first, "thus undermining efforts to reach a solution."
At the same time, with the outbreak of great civil unrest, Netanyahu faced more and more opposition. Former Israeli Prime Minister Yayil Lapid called Garrant's dismissal "a new trough." He tweeted that Netanyahu might be able to fire the minister, but "not the Israeli people who dare to face the mad alliance."
As the protesters gathered in the early morning of the Star Period and the situation got out of control, three Israeli government ministers of the Netanya Hulikud clique also came out and suggested that Netanyahu should stop the legislative reform of the judiciary. In it, Israel's Minister of Culture and Sports tweeted, "When a house is on fire, you don't ask who is right, but pour water to save the people in the house." If the prime minister decides to stop the movement in order to prevent the country from splitting, we must support his position. ”
And the Israeli Minister of Economy and former Mayor of Jerusalem, Nil Barcatel also suggested that Netanyahu should "stop and recalculate" his reform plan, warning that it had brought the country to the brink of civil war. He said, "Reform is necessary, and we will do it, but not at the cost of civil war." ”
After the large-scale protest in Israel, the White House of the United States issued a statement, declaring that the Biden administration is "deeply concerned about the development of events in Israel today." And Pelosi's ilk, who called the "Shewei protest" a "beautiful scenery line," remained silent.
