Police will consider whether to allow the weekly demonstration next to Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit’s home, following a request by Petah Tikva’s Deputy Mayor Uriel Bosso (Shas).

If it will take place this Saturday night, it will by the 38th consecutive such protest in the city, calling on the attorney-general to indict Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

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.
