Anti-government protest convoys made their way to the Supreme Court and the Prime Minister's residence in Jerusalem today.

The protest was intended, among other things, to call for the establishment of a state commission to investigate "Case 4,000." The event was organized by the "Black Flags" and "Investigate Now" movements.

At the Hemed interchange, Rami Matan was detained for questioning after refusing to hand over paint spray to the police.

"Jerusalem police continue conducting themselves in a disgraceful manner, arresting one of the heroes of the [Yom Kippur War], Rami Matan at the Hemed interchange," said a representative of the "Black Flags." "The fact that the Netanyahu police under the command of Doron Yedid are arresting a protester because [they saw] the text "Bibi needs to go" proves the Jerusalem police are an insubordinate and partisan faction of the Israel Police force. It's time they fire Yedid," they added.

Meretz faction chairwoman Tamar Zandberg said at the demonstration, "One of the members of the inspection committee resigned due to a conflict of interest. What about the conflict of interest of a prime minister whose cousin and top lawyer represented a shipyard from which the same prime minister bought submarines behind the back of the defense establishment?"

"This affair deserves an authoritative inquiry by the state commission, with testimony by senior members of the defense establishment, published reports, and personal conclusions. This entire affair is a sign of decay in our holiest institution. We need this injustice to be corrected, and this correction must come by investigating of one of the most serious corruption cases in the history of the State. If not, there is no way of being sure that state security isn't compromised to corruption and lies," she asserted.
