Hundreds Protest outside Netanyahu’s Residence in Occupied Al-Quds
By Staff, Agencies
About 1,000 protesters gathered outside Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's official residence in occupied al-Quds on Saturday night, pressing ahead with their months-long campaign demanding his resignation.
A mix of grassroots groups have held the weekly protests, saying Netanyahu should step down while he is on trial for corruption and because of his handling of the coronavirus in the occupied territories. After two lockdowns this year, the occupation entity’s economy is struggling, and hundreds of thousands of ‘Israelis’ remain out of work.
After six months of demonstrations and with wintry weather setting in, the protest crowds have started to shrink. But participants remained vocal and animated Saturday. Nearly all wore masks, though not everyone observed social distancing.
Many held Zionist and pink flags, one of the symbols of the protest movement. Others hoisted model submarines, a reference to a scandal over an ‘Israeli’ purchase of German submarines in which several Netanyahu associates have been implicated.
Netanyahu has not been named as a suspect in that case, though his rival, War Minister Benny Gantz, ordered an investigation into the affair this week.
Smaller protests also took place at junctions and overpasses across the ‘Israeli’-occupied territories, and at Netanyahu's private residence in the upscale coastal town of Caesaria.
