Hundreds of taxi drivers protested the high price of diesel fuel on Thursday by blocking the intersection near the Azrieli Towers in Tel Aviv.

The drivers were expected to continue in a slow procession down Namir Road to the Tel Aviv Exhibition Center.

The protesting taxi drivers called on the government to extend an order to delay a rise on the tax of gasoline to diesel fuel as well.
