Israel: Thousands rally against Netanyahu in Jerusalem as protests enter 11th week

Several thousand people marched through the streets of Jerusalem on Saturday night as demonstrators took to the streets for an 11th week in a row to call for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's resignation. Crowds could be seen moving along the street, with some demonstrators in costume, while many others waved flags and banners. Protesters gathered near the prime minister's official residence, where nearby streets were fenced off by police, who stared down demonstrators. Last Saturday, thousands of protesters flooded the city to demand Netanyahu's resignation, in the latest in a growing wave of demonstrations that have taken place over the last two months. Demonstrators point to corruption allegations against Netanyahu and what they perceive as his government's poor handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
