Thousands of Israelis on Saturday renewed weekly demonstrations against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, calling for the long-serving leader\u00a0to resign over corruption charges\u00a0against him and his alleged mishandling of the coronavirus crisis.\r\nProtesters held signs reading \u201cGo,\u201d and \u201cBibi, let my people go,\u201d referring to Netanyahu by his nickname.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe protest in a Jerusalem square near Netanyahu\u2019s official residence comes as Israel is the midst of its third national lockdown, which was recently tightened to shutter schools, and as the country presses forward with a world-leading vaccination drive.\u00a0Netanyahu\u2019s trial was set to resume this week, but was postponed indefinitely amid the tighter restrictions.\r\nNetanyahu\u00a0has been indicted on charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust connected to three long-running investigations. He has denied any wrongdoing and says he is the victim of a \u201cwitch hunt\u201d by hostile media, law enforcement and judicial officials. Protesters argue that Netanyahu cannot properly lead the country while under indictment.\r\nIsrael has seen a recent surge in cases despite unleashing one of the world\u2019s fastest vaccination campaigns. The country has given the first of two vaccine doses to nearly 20 percent of its population, and Netanyahu said Thursday that Israel has secured enough vaccines to inoculate the whole adult population by the end of March.\r\nNetanyahu has placed the vaccination drive at the center of his campaign for reelection that same month. On March 23, Israel will hold its fourth nationwide vote in less than two years. In the meantime, he has called on Israelis to make \u201cone last big effort\u201d to halt transmission by adhering to the tightened restrictions.
