Disabled IDF veterans blocked traffic on Tel Aviv's Ayalon Highway on Thursday as part of a demonstration calling for the government to increase their benefits.

The veterans have been protesting opposite the Defense Ministry in Tel Aviv, but have recently decided to take the protest to the roads in a push for further government action on the issue.

The protest resulted in heavy traffic in Tel Aviv, and police were urging drivers to talk alternative routes to avoid jams.
