WEST BANK (Dispatches) – Thousands of people gathered for a demonstration outside Zionist prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s residence in the occupied al-Quds on Saturday, demanding him to resign from office.
Several groups of protesters reportedly marched through the city streets before meeting at the destination.
Social media users shared videos from the rally, in which protesters are seen chanting political slogans.
Clashes broke out between police and demonstrators after one of the exits from Paris Square, the site where the demonstration took place, was blocked by police. One protestor reportedly suffered a head injury and was evacuated from the scene.
Other videos showed protesters carrying prop submarines with them, commonly seen in reference to the so-called Submarine corruption scandal, in which Netanyahu allegedly hid relevant information from military officials when the regime had decided to purchase new submarines.
Police had closed the streets around the residence of the prime minister prior to the protest. At the same time, in Caesarea, hundreds of people reportedly marched to the prime minister’s private house.
Earlier in the day, demonstrations took place at bridges and intersections throughout the occupied territories.  
For more than seven months, anti-regime protests have been ongoing, with the object of demanding Netanyahu’s resignation due to the trial on charges of bribery, fraud and breach of confidence and the handling of the COVID-19 pandemic by the regime.
