Dozens of protesters gathered outside the bed and breakfast where National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir was spending Shabbat in Kfar Oriya on Saturday morning.
Some residents of the area confronted the protesters, sprayed them with a hose and threw smoke grenades at them, setting a tree on fire, while other residents joined the protest against Ben-Gvir.
“This is a guy who wants to take all of our rights and throw them into the garbage,” said Yuval Hisson, one local resident, explaining his participation in the protests.
"I’m not going to bother him, but he’s coming here, to me. So the only thing I can tell him is go away, from my life, from my government. Just leave us alone and let us live as we used to, as a democracy.”
Border Police officers arrived on the scene and separated the opposing sides. An Israel Police spokesperson said one person who threw stones at the protesters was arrested and two demonstrators who weren’t listening to instructions were detained.
Protestors reach Netanyahu's home by sea
On Friday, protestors sailed to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's home in Caesarea in boats and swam up to the beach to protest outside his home.
They were later evacuated from the area by the police, who told them the protest was illegal.
