Hundreds of Israelis protested on Saturday evening against Benjamin Netanyahu outside his Jerusalem residence as the Israeli prime minister faces corruption charges.\r\nThe demonstration was fueled by the detention of seven protesters on Friday who held a smaller rally against Netanyahu\u2019s continuation as premier despite being under indictment. The demonstrators held banners describing Netanyahu as \u201ccrime minister.\u201d\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAmong the seven detainees was a former top Israeli air force general. On Saturday, Israeli police said the protest a day earlier was \u201cillegal\u201d because demonstrators blocked the roads.\r\nThree of the protesters, including retired Brig. Gen. Amir Haskel, remained in detention for refusing the police\u2019s release terms and insisting on participating in Saturday\u2019s protest, Israeli media reported.\r\nLast month, Netanyahu\u2019s trial on charges of fraud, breach of trust and accepting bribes opened in a Jerusalem court. It is scheduled to resume next month.\r\nNetanyahu\u2019s new government took office last month, ending more than a year of political stalemate.\r\nUnder a power sharing deal, Netanyahu was permitted to remain as prime minister, while his rival, Benny Gantz, was named defense minister and alternate prime minister.\r\nThe two men have agreed to switch posts after 18 months, though many analysts do not expect the government to last that long.
