Thursday 1.9.2016 in Peaceful Assembly in Israel Country Page
Although there is no constitutional guarantee of the right to freedom of peaceful assembly, it has been upheld by the judiciary as a fundamental right. The Police Ordinance (1971) and the Penal Law (1977) regulate the right to peaceful assembly, and they require prior permission to hold a demonstration or gathering involving more than 50 and where speeches or a march will be held in open air. In practice, government authorities reject permits for numerous public gatherings and repress them while they are being held. Gatherings which are anti-government, oppose government policies, or support Palestinian causes are specifically targeted.
