Israel: Thousands take to Tel Aviv streets against alleged corruption

Thousands of Israelis rallied on Saturday for the fourth consecutive week in Tel Aviv demanding Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to resign over corruption allegations. Protesters shouted slogans and carried banners demanding transparency and accountability from elected officials. “I came like everybody, against the corruption, and against the government and against the liars and against all... Еще the stories you can hear,” claimed one protester. “This is the government that does not represent the majority of the population here, but just a tiny group”, added another one. Right-wing protesters also took part in a counter demo, calling on the state to deport asylum seekers. In the past year, Netanyahu was questioned seven times in two corruption probes, which he claims to be false accusations from his opponents. If charged, the prime minister would be under pressure to resign or to call new elections.
