Police, protesters scuffle outside PM's home as anti-government rally turns chaotic

The third day of a four-day anti-government demonstration in Jerusalem turned chaotic as protesters scuffled with police outside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's home. The march began as a unified mass but fragmented when marchers flooded the narrow streets of Jerusalem's wealthy Rehavia neighborhood. Some protesters successfully directed a large contingent of the crowd to take a detour to Netanyahu's home, catching law enforcement off-guard. Police arrested five demonstrators throughout the night and opened an investigation into the throwing of a burning torch at a mounted officer. Far-right National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir accused the Shin Bet of ignoring threats to the prime minister in response to the protests.
