Event

Social activists have called for further anti-government demonstrations in Jerusalem for Saturday, July 25. Hundreds of protesters will reportedly gather outside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's resident, Beit Aghion, on Balfour Street from 20:30 (local time). The demonstration is the latest in connection with Netanyahu's ongoing corruption trial. A heightened security presence and localized transport disruption are to be anticipated in the vicinity of the demonstration.

Further protests over the issue are likely to take place in the coming days and weeks.

Context

Protests have been reported throughout Israel, particularly in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, in recent weeks over the government's handling of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. Anger over the issue has been compounded by pre-existing anti-Netanyahu sentiment, with the prime minister facing three criminal cases over alleged corruption.

Advice

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