Several thousand people took part in a protest march in Tel Aviv against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday over corruption allegations.
"Bibi is an embarrassment" and "Netanyahu to jail," the protesters chanted, calling for his resignation and imprisonment.
The march started with a Hanukkah lighting ceremony and was held under the banner "We have come to drive out corruption."

The Saturday protest was the third "March of Shame" against Netanyahu in less than a month.

Similar protests were held on Saturday in other Israeli cities, including Jerusalem, Haifa, Ashkelon and Ashdod.
Earlier this week, Netanyahu was questioned by police for the seventh time as part of an ongoing corruption investigation against him. The prime minister strongly denies any wrongdoing and says he is the victim of a smear campaign by political opponents.
Israeli media also reported that the investigation has enough evidence to bring formal bribery charges against Netanyahu.
Netanyahu is being investigated in a pair of corruption probes, knows as cases 1000 and 2000. In the first investigation, he is suspected of accepting expensive gifts from wealthy supporters, in the form of cigars, champagne and jewelry in return for advancing their interests. The second investigation looks into allegations that Netanyahu arranged to obtain favorable coverage from the popular broadsheet Yedioth Ahronoth in return for creating problems for its rival, the Israel Hayom paper.
