(CNN) Hundreds of protesters gathered outside a hairdressing salon in Tel Aviv, where Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s wife was getting her hair done, videos circulating on social media showed Wednesday night.
According to videos released by journalists, dozens of police officers appeared running near the salon, as well as a helicopter hovering in the sky.
Netanyahu accused the demonstrators of being “anarchist activists” led by former prime minister Yair Lapid.
On the other hand, Lapid demanded, via Twitter, the demonstrators to leave Sarah Netanyahu in peace, and called on the demonstrators to allow Sarah Netanyahu to go out to her house, and said: “Your struggle and our struggle against the coup of the regime and the destruction of democracy.”
Earlier Wednesday evening, Netanyahu, in a speech, denounced protesters against his government’s plan to weaken Israel’s independent judiciary, saying: “We cannot tolerate violence, attacks on police officers, road closures, threats to public figures and their families, we will not allow the law to be broken and the practice of violence anywhere.
