Israeli police clashed with crowds of protesters at night after parliament adopted a highly controversial law to limit the Supreme Court’s powers.
The measure – part of a big reform package – will prevent the court from overruling government actions it considers unreasonable.
Police in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv used water cannon to disperse protesters blocking highways.
Critics say the hard-right government’s reforms threaten Israeli democracy.
After months of mass street protests over the judicial reform Monday’s Knesset (parliament) vote was an important victory for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
But the battle is not over. It may go on for months.
