Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the head of the Israeli government coalition after a meeting with faction leaders that he intends to suspend judicial reform, media reported .
Earlier today, flights from the largest airport, Ben Gurion, were suspended in Israel amid protests against this reform. The Israel Doctors' Union also announced a suspension of the health care system announcing the abolition of judicial reform.
On March 26, activists blocked a major highway in Tel Aviv and broke through the last police checkpoint in front of the residence of the head of government in Jerusalem. This came after the Prime Minister's decision to fire Defense Minister Yoav Galant, who had called for judicial reform to be put on hold .
In early January, the new Israeli government, led by Benjamin Netanyahu, presented a draft reform, the essence of which is to weaken the judiciary and deprive the highest judicial authority of the ability to overturn laws. The idea caused discontent among a significant part of society, and protests began in the country. On March 11, the opposition announced the largest action in the history of the country: 500,000 people took to the streets of Israeli cities, about half in Tel Aviv.
