Еще accused the prime minister of being «extremely corrupted.» The former Mayor of Tel Aviv stated that Israel is «above» the prime minster. «In such a situation we need him to go home, to fight [for] his innocence and this is it, this is what we are expecting, that he will resign and this is why we are here tonight,» said another protester. Netanyahu has been charged with bribery, fraud and breach of trust in connection with three separate cases. The prime minster has denied the charges and said that they were part of a political 'witch-hunt' to remove him from power.
