In November 2019, Netanyahu was charged with corruption, fraud and trust abuse in three different lawsuits. However, at his first trial in May, the 70-year-old prime minister denied the allegations.
Meanwhile, the number of COVID-19 cases has risen again in Israel, unemployment is high, and Prime Minister Netanyahu’s government re-imposes restrictions to prevent the epidemic from spreading in recent weeks. This is the reason why thousands of people in this country take to the streets to protest.
