Dozens of business owners marched through Tel Aviv on Thursday, burning tires and holding signs in protest of the coronavirus lockdown, which has left them without a source of income.
The protests began just hours before Israel's cabinet was set to reconvene to discuss lifting some restrictions on the commerce industry, which sustained a heavy economic blow during the pandemic. Finance Minister Israel Katz has demanded small businesses, including street shops, be allowed to reopen as soon as next week.
