Thousands protest in Israel calling on Netanyahu to step down

Thousands of Israelis protesters gathered outside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s residence, calling for him to resign over his corruption
The demonstration was held on Thursday night, in front of Netanyahu’s official residence in the occupied city of Jerusalem al-Quds, two days after some 50 people were arrested in a similar protest.

The previous protest, attended by several thousand people on Tuesday, turned violent and police used water cannons and officers mounted on horses to disperse demonstrators.

Netanyahu, who in May forged a new unity government after more than a year of political turmoil, insists the charges were trumped up to drive him from office.

The next trial date at Jerusalem district court is set for July 19.
