Israelis March From South to Netanyahu’s Home

Israel’ socio-economic issues pose the greatest threat to the safety of its citizens, not the threat of terrorist attacks, protesters said in a rally near the Prime Minister’s residence in Jerusalem on Friday.

The rally was composed of about ten participants, all of whom marched to Jerusalem from the southern city of Be’er Sheva to protest what they called Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s attempt to thwart a recent wave of social unrest by focusing on renewed tensions along the southern front with the Gaza Strip.

“Speaking as the citizens who are actually going down to the shelters [over rocket attacks] it’s the economic situation that killing us,” the protesters said, adding: “[Nentayhu] says that we’re not dealing with the economic situation because they’re firing at us. So they’re firing, the social and economic situation is much worse.”
