THOUSANDS of Israelis braved wet weather this weekend to continue months of demonstrations demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
On Saturday night several thousand people gathered outside Mr Netanyahu’s official residence in Jerusalem, the focal point for most of the demonstrations.
A similarly large crowd protested outside his private home in the upmarket coastal town of Caesarea.
Smaller gatherings took place at road junctions and overpasses across Israel.
The protests, now in their sixth month, appeared to be smaller than in recent weeks, with parts of Israel experiencing heavy rain on Saturday and grassroots organisers facing potential difficulties assembling large crowds as winter arrives.
Protesters say Mr Netanyahu should resign while he is on trial for corruption charges and accuse him of mishandling the country’s coronavirus crisis.
The pandemic has hit the economy hard and sent unemployment skyrocketing. Many of the protesters are young people who have lost their jobs.
