Israel protest against Netanyahu

A prominent opposition lawmaker said Saturday evening that he will convene a meeting of the Knesset State Control Committee on the conduct of police at protests against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“Police conduct in tonight’s demonstrations crossed the reasonable line,” Ofer Shelah (Yesh Atid) said in a statement. “At the first opportunity I will convene the State Control Committee for a thorough inquiry into this bizarre policy.”

Israel Extends Lockdown Until October 14

The demonstrators are protesting over Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s handling of the coronavirus crisis and his involvement in corruption.   

The new law bans Israelis from holding demonstrations more than 1 km from their homes to curb COVID-19 infections but people are calling it a curb against freedom of speech to control protests against Prime Minister’s corruption.

Tens of thousands of Israelis protested against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the government he leads in communities throughout Israel Saturday, after the passage of highly contentious legislation this week that banned mass demonstrations as part of coronavirus lockdown restrictions.

Socially distanced rallies were held in hundreds of locations throughout the afternoon and evening, though at times orderly conduct gave way to more chaotic scenes of scuffles between protesters and police.

A police statement said 38 people were arrested in Tel Aviv alone for “violating public order and attacking police officers.”

Demonstrators alleged that police used excessive force, and footage showed protesters being shoved or punched.
