JERUSALEM, March 27 (Reuters) – Take-offs from Israel’s main Ben Gurion Airport were suspended on Monday as part of nationwide protests against the government’s judicial overhaul plan, an airport spokesperson said.

Two main ports in Israel announced on Monday that they had stopped work in adherence to a labour strike in protest at the religious-nationalist government’s judicial overhaul.

Haifa and Ashdod ports said in separate statements that work was halted after Israel’s main labour union announced a general strike earlier on Monday until Prime Minister Benjamin Netanayhu stopped judicial legislation.
