Many buses arrived at the Sharon Prison compound, which also houses Hadarim Prison. The demonstration, which took place without a permit, was initially conducted quietly, but later, the protesters went down to the road and blocked it. A police force from the Sharon area and the traffic department cleared them and re-opened the road to traffic.
