Smotrich visits Deri’s home as supporters rally outside

Several dozen people gather outside the home of Shas leader Aryeh Deri to voice their support for him.

Demonstrators call out, “He’s innocent” and “Deri the people are with you.”

Various politicians and rabbis are coming to visit Deri at his home. The latest is Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich.

Shas’s rabbinical council puts out a statement saying the court has “wronged” the party leader while “erasing the identity of huge swaths of the people.” It urges him to continue to lead Shas.
