Event

Anti-government activists have planned a demonstration against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem on Saturday, September 5, to call for his resignation. Participants will reportedly gather at 19:00 (local time) on the Chords Bridge before marching towards the Prime Minister's Residence on Balfour Street for a rally at 20:00. Police sources have stated that the demonstration is likely to be well attended.

A heightened security presence is to be expected around the protest site, and disruption to transportation is also likely in the vicinity of the demonstration.

Context

Protests have been reported throughout Israel, particularly in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, in recent months over the government's handling of the 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.
