War Cabinet dismissedProtesters demanding new elections in Israel clashed with police near the Jerusalem house of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday after he dissolved the government's War Cabinet, leaving him as the unquestioned decision-maker regarding the eight-month-old conflict in Gaza.

Police said nine people were arrested, some for attacking officers, and the demonstration was declared illegal and dispersed with a water canon. Reuters reported thousands of protesters marched from the Knesset − the Israeli parliament − toward Netanyahu's home and some tried to break through barriers before being pushed back by police.

Netanyahu, who returned to power in 2022 with a right-wing coalition, disbanded the War Cabinet a week after centrist opposition leader Benny Gantz resigned, citing Netanyahu's failure to reveal his plans for postwar Gaza. Gantz also accused the prime minister of failing to prioritize negotiating the release of more than 100 hostages still held by Hamas-led militants in Gaza.
