Several thousand Israelis held protests on Saturday against PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s plan to declare sovereignty over parts of the occupied West Bank, de facto annexing the lands that Palestinians are trying to get at their disposal, Reuters reported.
The protesters were in masks and kept a social distancing. They gathered under the banner “No to annexation, no to occupation, yes to peace and democracy”.
The protest rally was organized by the political forces of the left-wing and did not turn into a mass movement.
Organizers presented a video message addressed to US Senator Bernie Sanders.
The agency notes that according to recent polls, half of Israelis support annexation.
