In June, the High Court decided these protests are legal, but Bosso says the nature of the rallies have changed since then. From small protests of dozens, they became events attracting thousands, both for and against Netanyahu. The new conditions are harming the residents of the area, said Bosso.

A police spokesman told the Jerusalem Post that as for now, police have not made a decision on this matter yet and there are no policy changes.
