Protests held against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu across Israel on Saturday were marked by incidents of violence, including attacks on protesters by civilians and police.

Violent incidents took place in several locations across the country, as thousands of protesters demanded the resignation of the Netanyahu government over what they say is the mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic.
