Hundreds of demonstrators gathered Thursday evening at the entrance to the Vizhnitz bakery in Bnei Brak, shouting slogans against the left and waving signs of support for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.
The demonstration was due to the visit of Blue and White chairman MK Benny Gantz in Bnei Brak, who was scheduled for a visit to the area to meet with the charedi public. Gantz was to have been accompanied by Knesset members Yoaz Hendel and Yizhar Shai.
