Scuffles, arrests in Jerusalem as people protest against PM Netanyahu for 8th consecutive week (VIDEO)


Hundreds rallied in opposition to Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday as anger over his alleged corruption and response to Covid-19 continues to boil within the streets. A number of individuals had been arrested when police dispersed protesters.

An estimated 10,000 individuals took half in the primary anti-government demonstration exterior of the prime minister’s official residence in Jerusalem, native media reported. The numbers had been considerably decrease than the earlier week, when file attendance was registered.

Ten protesters had been arrested after police began dispersing demonstrators who stayed on the scene after midnight. Some had been taken into custody for refusing to go away or resisting officers whereas others had been intercepted attempting to start out a protest march to a different location, which the police wouldn’t enable.

The standard themes of the protests – Netanyahu’s alleged corruption and the best way his authorities tackled the Covid-19 epidemic – had a brand new addition this week. The demonstration occurred two days after Israel signed an settlement with the UAE on establishing diplomatic ties, and slogans referring to the transfer had been added to the protesters’ toolbox.

“Fly Emirates and by no means come again,” learn one signal on the rally, apparently addressed to the prime minister. “If there’s no bread, fly to Dubai,” stated one other. Protesters see the settlement as a ploy to distract Israelis from issues at residence and rating political factors for Netanyahu.
