Israeli protesters in al-Quds call on Netanyahu to resign as Gaza war rages

Israeli protesters call on Netanyahu to resign as Gaza war rages, on November 14. 2023.

Israeli protesters have marched on the parliament in al-Quds, calling for the resignation of prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu amid the regime’s brutal war against the Gaza Strip.

The protesters gathered outside the Israeli parliament, known as the Knesset, on Tuesday, saying Netanyahu is unfit for office, blaming the premier for the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas' surprise attack last month, and the regime's subsequent attack which has killed more than 11,000 people so far.

“Go, go, go,” the protesters chanted.

"Any moment that our prime minister is in his role is dangerous for the citizens, for the soldiers, and he needs to quit," a protester said.

"If you're talking about unity, it's better without Netanyahu… I'd say it's best that he leave as soon as possible. He's not worthy of the office, and he certainly has not been a person who has taken the interest of Israel as his prime duty,” another protester said.

“His prime duty has always been to survive as prime minister, as if his being prime minister is the national interest of” Israel, the protester added.

"We gather here to say that the one to be blamed is our prime minister. That he has to go down and leave office and let another government to rule in Israel and try to make it better, because what happened till now is terrible and we cannot afford that he will continue to be our prime minister, " said another demonstrator.

The latest protest comes as Israel is intensifying its attacks on Gaza despite widespread international condemnation.

Israel waged the war on Gaza on October 7 after Hamas carried out the surprise Operation Al-Aqsa Storm into the occupied territories in response to the occupying regime’s intensified crimes against the Palestinian people.

According to the Gaza-based health ministry, at least 11,250 Palestinians have been killed in the strikes, most of them women and children, and more than 29,000 others have been injured in the Israeli strikes.

Tel Aviv has also imposed a “complete siege” on Gaza, cutting off fuel, electricity, food, and water to the more than two million Palestinians living there.

The occupied territories have also been rocked by mass anti-regime rallies since January, when Netanyahu’s cabinet announced a legislation package that would roll back some supreme court powers and give the governing hard-right coalition decisive sway in picking judges.

The protests soon turned into a movement against the Netanyahu regime.
