Thousands of people on Tuesday demonstrated outside the official residence of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem, calling on the embattled leader to resign as he faces a trial on corruption charges and grapples with a deepening coronavirus crisis.

Some of the protesters waved lit torches, hurled eggs at policemen and vandalized shops, according to the police. Others tried breaking through police barricades, confronted police officers and threw other objects at them.

50 people were arrested.

Police spokesman, inspector Mickey Rosenfeld told KAN's Mark Weiss that the police intervened after widespread disturbances broke out.
