Report: Police seek to open probe of MK for taking part in highway-blocking protest

Police are considering opening an investigation against Labor MK Naama Lazimi for her participation in a protest that blocked a highway in Tel Aviv. Lazimi, along with other protesters and family members of hostages, blocked the Ayalon Highway and lit a bonfire on the road. The left-wing lawmaker has been a regular presence at protests against the government's failure to secure the release of hostages held in Gaza. If charges are brought against her, Lazimi could request parliamentary immunity. Tens of thousands of people participated in mass protests across Israel, with the hostage families' protests and the anti-government protest merging in Tel Aviv.
