Thousands gathered in Jerusalem and across Israel on Saturday, October 31 in the latest weekly demonstrations against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over his handling of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic and charges of corruption. In Jerusalem, demonstrators congregated around the prime minister's official residence (Beit Aghion) on Balfour Street. Smaller protests were held at various other locations across the country.

Further protests over the issue are expected in the near term. A heightened security presence and localized disruptions to transport are possible in the vicinity of any demonstrations.


Protests have been reported throughout Israel 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.


Those in Israel are advised to monitor developments, avoid protests as a precaution, anticipate transport disruptions in the vicinity of any demonstrations, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
