Event

Thousands have gathered outside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's house in Balfour street calling for him to resign on Tuesday, July 14. Demonstrators are holding up black flags and signs in protest against alleged government corruption. Protesters also gathered to denounce Netanyahu's attacks on the attorney general, the judiciary, and the media while denying charges in three corruption cases against him. Media reports suggest that around ten pro-government protesters are also demonstrating in the area; however, there are no reports of clashes as of Tuesday afternoon (local time).

Further protests and associated disruptions are likely in the near term. A heightened security presence is also to be expected.

Advice

Those in Israel are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
