Ben-Gvir backs pro-reforms protest

Far-right National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir has tweeted his support for counter-protests backing the government's planned judicial reforms.

"Today we stop being silent. Today the right wakes up. Spread further," he wrote, accompanied by a poster with details for the rally outside the Knesset on Monday evening. 

Earlier, Ben-Gvir said he would resign if the reforms are halted, but continue to support the government from the outside. 

Far-right Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich has also backed the demonstrations, stating that "in no way can the judicial reform stop."
