Dozens protesting outside Knesset, calling for elections

Dozens of people are protesting outside the Knesset in Jerusalem, calling on the government to quit and call new elections.

The activists are sitting on the floor, blocking the entrance to the building and chanting “Elections now.”

“Any hopes that the government would raise to the occasion of this time of emergency have been shattered by their failed actions, expressed by their dysfunction, the abandonment of the hostages, the fatal damage to Israel’s international reputation, their continued incitement and divisiveness and the diversion of budgets in favor of personal interests at the expense of the public as a whole,” organizers say in a statement.

” We came to the Knesset to demand elections now, the immediate replacement of the government, and the expulsion of the extremists,” they say.
