Görkem ŞEKEROĞLU -TDO- Officials said on Saturday (5 December) that at least 27 people were arrested in demonstrations against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
According to Israeli police said protests took place in Paris Square near Netanyahu's residence in Western Jerusalem. The protests caused the closure of roads and public unrest.
Thousands of protesters organized rallies in various parts of the country, especially in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, demanding the resignation of Netanyahu because of a corruption case against him and his mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic, according to several media reports. The Prime Minister denied any misconduct and formed a national unity government with Blue and White party leader Benny Gantz back in April.
According to Israeli media, the protest on Saturday was the largest in weeks and took place before a court hearing on Netanyahu’s request to dismiss his corruption case.
