At least 55 people were arrested after a registered protest outside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s residence in Jerusalem to request his resignation.
In order to dispel the protest, in which around 4,000 people took part, the police used water cannons shortly after midnight. Some demonstrators who peacefully left the area were shot by cannons.
The protesters, who on other occasions denounced that the police had used excessive force during the protests, carried banners that read “We will not stop fighting for the state,” “We are fed up with no other country,” or “Tired of corruption “reported the local newspaper” Times of Israel “.
Netanyahu was the first executive to be prosecuted for corruption in late May after being indicted by the country’s attorney general, Avichai Mandelblit, in November 2019 after several months of investigations.
