Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s residence was besieged by thousands of protesters demanding his resignation for the 12th weekend running yesterday and today.

Iran PressMiddle East: Demonstrators held banners reading “revolution” and “get out of here” as they called for his resignation over corruption charges and the government’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis, according to Morning Star.

A sign was projected on a building, reading “enough with you,” while smaller crowds gathered on bridges and intersections across the country also calling for the PM to step down.

At least 13 arrests were made and two officers were slightly injured when a crowd burst through a police blockade.

Over 1,000 Israelis have now died from coronavirus, while official statistics published last week recorded 199.3 new cases per day per million people, the highest per-capita infection rate in the world.

Unemployment has soared to 21 percent and the mass protests are now being joined by industrial action over government attacks on workers. Thousands of technicians employed by labs processing COVID-19 tests walked out in an open-ended strike beginning on August 30, attacking privatization and outsourcing in the health sector.
