Left-wing demonstrations are currently taking place on Balfour Street in Jerusalem, Caesarea and Tel Aviv. Likud attacks media channels: Channels 12 and 13 “continue to serve as a propaganda arm for anarchist left-wing demonstrations”
Left-wing demonstrations against Prime Minister Netanyahu are currently taking place in the area of the Prime Minister’s official residence in Jerusalem, as well as in Charles Clore Square in Tel Aviv, and in the area of the Prime Minister’s private home in Caesarea.
Thousands take part in the various demonstrations.
MK Ayman Odeh tweeted that he had taken “an hour’s break from the Feast of Sacrifice celebrations to demonstrate in Balfour. Throwing Netanyahu and the racist and corrupt path he represents is the first step in the deep correction required here.”

The Likud said in response to the left-wing ceasefire that “Channels 12 and 13 continue to be a propaganda arm for anarchist left-wing demonstrations. They are making a desperate effort to brainwash the public, in order to overthrow a powerful right-wing prime minister.” In a transparent attempt to inflate their importance and weight, however, they ignore the violent nature of the demonstrations and the calls for the assassination of the prime minister and his family. North Korean television can learn from them, but the public does not buy it. “In Corona and strengthen the Israeli economy. The prime minister calls on everyone to unite in this effort and ignore the media’s dangerous incitement campaign.”
Later in the evening, a demonstration is expected in front of the house of Supreme Court President Esther Hayut, in the Tzahala neighborhood, against legal corruption.
Shefi Paz, a social activist in south Tel Aviv, calls on the general public to come to the demonstration, and tells Channel 20 that “if the Supreme Court did not consider the residents of the Rehavia neighborhood, we will not consider it.”
Earlier we announced that the Supreme Court rejected the petition of the residents of the Rehavia neighborhood who wanted to limit the demonstrations in front of the Prime Minister’s residence until 23:00, claiming that the demonstration slides into the small hours of the night and it disturbs their peace. The court dismissed the petition.
Judge David Mintz replied in the rejection of the petition, already after half an hour, that there was no room to grant the request. In the decision, Mintz wrote: “With all understanding for the plight of the applicants, there is no justification for issuing an interim order, certainly not taking into account the date of the demonstration in question. The application is denied.”
