Netanyahu Calls for 'Anarchy to Stop' After Wife Surrounded by Protesters at Hair Salon

Security forces evacuated Sara Netanyahu, the wife of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, from a hair salon in Tel Aviv after protesters prevented her from leaving on Wednesday night, March 1, Israeli media reported.

Footage by Tuvi Pollack shows a large number of protesters gathered outside the salon and police responding.

After she was evacuated, Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted a photo of him and his wife embracing. He called on the “anarchy to stop”, warning “it can cost lives.”

Earlier, protesters clashed with police in Tel Aviv as demonstrations blocked roads and public transport as part of action against the Israeli prime minister’s proposed judicial reform.

Changes to the justice system aim to give the elected government decisive influence over the choice of judges and limit the ability of the Supreme Court to rule against the executive or strike down legislation, the BBC reported. Credit: Tuvi Pollack via Storyful
