Hundreds of people gathered on Sunday morning at Jerusalem's Western Wall to participate in a communal prayer before beginning a day of widespread protests against the Israeli government's judicial reform.
National Unity Party leader Benny Gantz was seen on Sunday morning at the Western Wall, and he told N12: "There is a rift in the nation and it must be treated. Netanyahu must stop the legislation."
According to N12, demonstrators will form a human chain from the Western Wall to the Knesset following the prayers.
