Former Transportation Minister Bezalel Smotrich responded on Saturday night to the big demonstration which took place in Rabin Square in Tel Aviv.

"You do not need these pictures to know that this evening's demonstration is a left-wing demonstration of Netanyahu-hating anarchists who are cynically taking advantage of the true economic plight of many Israeli citizens. Look at the promotion [of the protest] by the left-wing media, the signs, and the derogatory remarks," he wrote.

"There is financial distress, it is real, and Netanyahu is not handling it well, but the right has nothing to look for in this demonstration. My friends on the right, do not be the useful idiots of the left and do not play into their hands even if you are angry, and rightly so, with Netanyahu."

More than 10,000 protesters arrived at Rabin Square in Tel Aviv on Saturday night to protest the conduct of the government. They demanded that the government immediately implement the economic plan to rehabilitate the self-employed and those severely affected by the coronavirus crisis.

At the conclusion of the protest, several dozen protesters arrived At Ibn Gvirol Street and blocked a section of the road. They scattered banknotes featuring Prime Minister Netanyahu, calling on him to resign.
