According to the International Monetary Fund, Israelis face high rates of poverty.

Hundreds of Israelis have held a demonstration in Tel Aviv to protest against the ailing economy.


Israeli security officers used force to disperse the protesters, who had gathered in front of the residences of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Energy and Water Minister Silvan Shalom on Saturday night.

The demonstrators shouted slogans against the economic policies of the regime of Netanyahu.

The protesters surrounded the governor of Bank of Israel, Stanley Fischer, who was present at the scene, crying out, “Where’s our money?” Police officers escorted Fischer into his car.

The Israeli protesters also expressed discontent with a plan by the Tel Aviv regime to export gas. They say such decisions should be taken by the Knesset (parliament) and not the cabinet.

Last week, thousands of Israelis took to the streets in protest against the austerity measures imposed by the Tel Aviv regime.

According to the International Monetary Fund, Israelis face high rates of poverty.
