Israel: Anti-govt protesters hit streets of Tel Aviv against alleged corruption

Thousands of Israelis marched for the fifth consecutive week in Tel Aviv, on Saturday, demanding Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu resign over corruption allegations. Protesters shouted slogans and carried placards denouncing the government. One protester stated, «I think it is very important to come here even though I live abroad to show my support and show it is important to have a better... Еще country.» He stressed that corruption should «be eradicated from the core of our politics so that we have a better country.» Right-wing protesters also took part in a counter demo, calling on the state to deport asylum seekers. In the past year, Netanyahu has been questioned in two corruption probes, which he claims to be false accusations from his opponents. Results of the investigation are expected within the next few weeks. If charged, the prime minister would be under pressure to resign or to call new elections.
