STORY: Protesters briefly occupied the Ayalon highway, one of Tel Aviv's main thoroughfares, before it was cleared by police on horseback and with water cannon. Several people were seen being detained.A demonstration took place outside the residence of Israeli president, Isaac Herzog, in Jerusalem as well, with many also demanding the government negotiate a peace deal with the Palestinians. Israeli media estimated more than 150,000 people attended anti-government protests nationwide on Saturday, the largest in commercial hub Tel Aviv.That's despite Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday (April 27) suspending the overhaul to allow negotiations on a compromise between his religious-nationalist coalition and opposition parties.Proponents say the government's drive aims to seek a less elitist, interventionist bench. Critics see it as a threat to the court's independence and an attempt at a legal coup. And protesters want the overhaul scrapped, not only suspended.
