Thousands of Israelis demonstrated in Jerusalem in a continuation of months-long weekend rallies demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who faces a corruption trial and accusations of mishandling the coronavirus crisis.

Media reports say some 20,000 took part in the demonstration in Jerusalem on Saturday, while organisers, citing bracelets they hand out to all participants, said attendance was at 37,000.

Images on social media and the news organisations showed several protesters being dragged by police near Netanyahu’s residence. It’s the 11th week that protesters hit the streets of Israel to demand Netanyahu’s resignation.

Smaller protests also took part in other parts in Israel, including overpasses and outside Netanyahu’s private house in the upscale town of Caesaria.
