Tel Aviv Protest Against Exporting Natural Gas


A number of roads near Kaplan Street in Tel Aviv have been blocked off Wednesday night due to demonstrations in Rabin Square. The protesters are asking for the Israeli government not to export natural gas to other countries. The government announced on Wednesday a plan to keep 60% of the natural gas reserves for Israeli use and to export the remainder. Police have warned drivers in the area to use alternate routes to avoid the protest.
