Netanyahu urges supporters not to go to court to support him in tomorrow’s hearing

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calls on his supporters not to come tomorrow to the Jerusalem District Court as the premier attends a hearing in his graft trial for the second time, citing the danger of COVID-19 infections.

“I know you want to give me strength in light of the fabricated and false cases against me,” says Netanyahu, who has denied any wrongdoing in the cases, which include bribery charges.

“But we are at a time when a [mutated strain] is spreading around the world, and in Israel too, so for the sake of your own health I ask you: Don’t come tomorrow.”
