Several thousand people took part in weekly protests against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Saturday evening, calling for his resignation for the 23rd week.

In Jerusalem, some 2,000 were reported to be demonstrating outside the Prime Minister’s Residence. In Tel Aviv, several hundred protested at Rabin Square. A few hundred also rallied outside the prime minister’s private residence in Caesarea.

Protesters also gathered in small rallies at plazas, intersections and overpasses throughout the country, as they have every Saturday for the past few months.

Recent weeks have seen a drop-off in attendance at the nation-wide protests, whether due to the colder and wetter weather or due to a dip in enthusiasm, and Saturday’s events appeared to continue that trend.
