Tel Aviv protesters call on Netanyahu to resign


Protesters angry with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have taken to the streets of Tel Aviv to demand fresh elections.

While anti-government protests declined in the wake of the 7 October attacks, Mr Netanyahu’s popularity has fallen as the fighting goes on.

Mass protests were regularly held throughout 2023 demanding his resignation – fuelled by opposition to controversial judicial reforms. Mr Netanyahu is now also under pressure over the fate of the dozens of hostages taken from Israel by Hamas fighters on 7 October and held in Gaza.

More than 1,200 people were killed when Hamas attacked Israel, sparking the ongoing war.

The Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza says more than 28,800 people have been killed.
