    Last Saturday, about 10,000 people gathered outside the Prime Minister’s official residence, joining thousands of other demonstrators across the country.

    Watch a live broadcast from Jerusalem where a new round of anti-government protests is being held outside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's official residence on Saturday.
