Hundreds of protesters demonstrated on Saturday evening near Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit’s home in Petah Tikva in the latest weekly protest calling for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to be indicted in a pair of corruption cases.

Saturday’s gathering was the second to take place since the High Court of Justice ruled the demonstrations could continue with limited numbers after police blocked a Saturday night protest on August 19 and arrested two of its leaders.
