Protesters surround Netanyahu's wife outside a salon
Israeli media says that the IOF rescued Netanyahu's wife after hundreds of demonstrators surrounded her in front of a salon in northern Tel Aviv.
Israeli media reports that Sarah Netanyahu, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's wife, was stuck in a hair salon in northern "Tel Aviv" after hundreds of demonstrators surrounded it. She was then escorted by IOF and taken away from the angry crowd.
While Israelis fight against Netanyahu's judicial coup, his wife got a haircut in Tel Aviv. Protesters surround the salon, and the police are sent in mass numbers to free her. Seems she thinks her hair is more important than the country falling apart. pic.twitter.com/olXjVCuBq2— Louis Fishman لوي فيشمان לואי פישמן (@Istanbultelaviv) March 1, 2023
In response, Netanyahu wrote on Twitter: "The anarchy activists led by Lapid continue to cross red lines. They are currently harassing and threatening my wife in Tel Aviv. I call on Lapid and the opposition to stop this immediately and condemn this disgraceful act that was unprecedented."
פעילי האנרכיה בהנהגת לפיד ממשיכים לחצות קווים אדומים. כרגע הם צרים ומאיימים על רעייתי בתל אביב. אני קורא ללפיד ולאופוזיציה להפסיק זאת מייד ולגנות מעשה מביש זה שלא היה כדוגמתו.— Benjamin Netanyahu - בנימין נתניהו (@netanyahu) March 1, 2023
Demonstrations have been ongoing in the occupation entity for the eighth week in a row against the draft judicial amendments bill announced by Netanyahu, and the approval of the Israeli "Knesset" in its first reading.

The opposition believes that the main goal of the amendments proposed by the ruling coalition is to "clear Netanyahu of corruption charges in the three files he is being tried," in addition to opening the door for his ally Aryeh Deri to assume a ministerial portfolio, despite his conviction on charges of tax fraud and theft for the second time.
