Thousands protest against Netanyahu over COVID-19, corruption allegations

JERUSALEM, Aug 8 (Reuters) - Thousands of Israelis rallied outside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s residence in Jerusalem on Saturday as anger mounted against him over alleged corruption and an economic crisis fuelled by the coronavirus.

“Your time is up” read the giant letters projected onto a building at the protest site as demonstrators waved Israeli flags and called on Netanyahu to resign.
