Today, Monday, the Israeli newspaper “Haaretz” reported that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s intention to suspend the judicial amendments, which sparked widespread protests, after consultations with the leaders of the government coalition.

The newspaper reported that the prime minister is expected to announce the suspension of legislation on judicial amendments later in the day.

For its part, Ynet quoted a source close to the prime minister as saying that Netanyahu had informed the White House of his intention to suspend the judicial amendments.

Yesterday, a White House spokesman expressed Washington’s concern about developments in Israel after the dismissal of the defense minister, on the grounds of his opposition to the judicial amendments.

“We continue to strongly urge Israeli leaders to find a compromise as soon as possible,” the spokesperson said in a statement released by the White House.

Mass demonstrations

Organizers in Israel said that more than 630,000 demonstrators participated in demonstrations in various cities of Israel last Saturday, in protest against the judicial amendments that the Netanyahu government seeks to impose.

Yesterday, Sunday, Netanyahu dismissed Defense Minister Yoav Gallant from his post, after the latter called for halting legislation to conduct dialogue with opponents, warning of the existence of “enormous threats” with the arrival of what he considered a “split” within the Israeli army.

Today, the “Times of Israel” newspaper said that thousands began to gather in front of the Knesset building in Jerusalem and in central Tel Aviv, to protest the judicial amendments.

The newspaper reported that trains to Jerusalem are packed with passengers, with demonstrators from all over Israel heading to the city to take part in the protests.
