Protests against Prime Minister Netanyahu are spreading across Israel


The protests took place on bridges and crossings across the country. Activists also gathered in front of Netanyahu’s house in the northern city of Caesarea and in front of the Presidential Palace in Jerusalem.

The protesters wore mouth masks against the coronavirus. Israel reacted quickly in the beginning of the pandemic, keeping the number of infections low. Netanyahu recently admitted that many lockdown measures have been lifted too early, which means that the number of infections is currently rising.

A lawsuit on corruption against the prime minister is still ongoing. Netanyahu has been charged with cheating in three cases, one of which dates back to 2007. He is said to have been guilty of abuse of power, fraud and bribery. If found guilty of certain crimes, he risks up to 10 years in prison.
