'Israel' is bleeding, army on path to disintegration: Israeli media
Israeli media say the occupation army raised the level of alert due to the "loss of control" of the overall situation.
Israeli media reported that over 600,000 Israeli settlers took to the streets on Sunday to protest against the judicial reforms introduced by the government of Israeli occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,
The media also said that thousands of demonstrators blocked the "Ayalon Highway" in "Tel Aviv" in both directions after Israeli occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dismissed Security Minister Yoav Gallant.
Ramming attempts by Israeli police vehicles at different locations were reported.
Also outraged by the sacking of the security minister, hundreds of angry settlers gathered outside Netanyahu’s house, as Israeli occupation police attempted to disperse them using water cannons.
Protesters chanting anti-government slogans also marched from Netanyahu’s home on Gaza Street toward the Israeli Knesset and the Prime Minister’s Office in occupied Al-Quds, the Israeli media said.
News outlets said that an Israeli vehicle tried to run over a group of demonstrators in "Tel Aviv", while Al Mayadeen correspondent also reported another attempt to run over demonstrators in occupied Akka.
- Netanyahu's family evacuated -
Israeli media revealed earlier that Security Unit 730 evacuated Netanyahu's family to the Shin Bet headquarters in occupied Al-Quds over fear for their lives as demonstrators stormed the barriers around the PM's house.
"Israel's security has become in clear and immediate danger, and all leaders of the security system must say this out loud," the media outlet warned, adding that "there is complete chaos near Netanyahu's house, and the situation seems to have gotten out of control."
Shin Bet today committed one of its biggest security failures in its history on Gaza Street in occupied Al-Quds (Netanyahu's residence), the media said.
- 'Israel' is bleeding -
Former officials in the Israeli security establishment said that Gallatn's dismissal is "a big step on the path to dismantling the [Isaeli] army," noting that "Israel is bleeding."
Avi Benayahu, a former spokesman for the Israeli army, was even more fearful of the situation.
"This is the darkest eve in Israel's history," he said, describing the ongoing mayhem.
- Lost control -
The Israeli army raised the state of alert on Sunday, linking it to the loss of control on the ground as a result of the heightened tensions and the growing internal division.
"We have lost control in several places where the demonstrations are taking place," a senior Israeli police officer said.
Al Mayadeen correspondent noted that "the demonstrations surprised the Israeli authority, which was not ready for such a scenario."
The Israeli media indicated that the organizers of the protests announced a demonstration in front of the Knesset tomorrow, starting at 2 pm in the afternoon.
Netanyahu "declared civil war"
Eitan Ben-Eliahu, a former Israeli occupation Air Force chief, considered that Netanyahu "declared civil war."
Former Israeli occupation Prime Minister Naftali Bennett warned that "Israel is in greater danger than at any time" since the 1973 War.
"I call from here to prime minister Netanyahu… to withdraw the dismissal of Gallant, to completely suspend the overhaul," he told the Israeli Channel 12.
