A motorcade comprising some 100 vehicles set out toward Jerusalem on Monday morning from the central Arab Israeli town of Qalansawe and the southern Beduin town of Rahat in protest of the state's recent demolitions in Umm al-Hira.

The vehicular congestion has caused obstructions on the country's eastern-most Trans-Israeli Highway, or Route 6.
