A massive crowd gathered along Rothschild Street in central Tel Aviv on Saturday evening, near the building where Israel was declared as a state, to protest corruption and the government’s conduct.
Watch: Anti-corruption protesters march in Tel Aviv
Tens of thousands of Israelis participated in an anti-corruption demonstration in central Tel Aviv on Saturday evening, as well as in smaller demonstrations in Jerusalem, Haifa and Beersheba.
The protesters held up signs calling on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to resign amid ongoing criminal probes involving him.
“When you have this many people going out into the streets, it means the government has nothing to offer other than more steps and laws that serve the rich tycoons,” one protester said.
The Likud party said in a statement, “Instead of uniting with the rest on the nation on the issue of Jerusalem and present a united front to the world, the left cannot help but spread more divisiveness.”
