Mass protests and widespread strikes are taking place across Israel over controversial judicial reforms.

Departure flights from Israel’s main airport have been suspended and there have been widespread walkouts in many industries.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu postponed a national TV address which was expected on Monday morning.

There is speculation he will pause plans to change the legal system.

But a far right coalition partner has said he should not surrender to anarchy.

The changes to the justice system have provoked an outpouring of anger from nearly all parts of Israeli society, including its powerful military.
