Police arrested a demonstrator at the Tel Aviv solidarity protest on Saturday night, as some 200 protesters broke through a police line and headed toward the Ayalon freeway. Demonstrators tried to block the police van but failed.

Additional police forces blocked the protesters's entrance to the freeway and closed the Ayalon to traffic.

Some one thousand demonstrators participated in the rally earlier Saturday, and marched from Shaul Hamelech road to the spot where Silman set himself alight on Kaplan at a social protest last week. Silman succumbed to his wounds on Friday.
