June 16 (EUROPA PRESS) –

Groups opposed to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have announced the start, this coming week, of several days of protests to demand the holding of elections at the latest before the first anniversary of the Gaza war, next October 7.

The announcement was preceded by a major mobilization this morning that blocked some of the main Israeli roads.

“Our objective is clear,” said the head of the opposition movement Liberate our Earth, Eran Schwartz, “to immediately return the mandate to the people and go to the polls before the anniversary of the failure that represented last October 7”, the day Palestinian militias committed a massacre in Israeli territory, responded to with a bombing campaign on Gaza that continues to this day.

The official has accused the Israeli Government of “constantly failing to care about its citizens” and the Prime Minister of “putting his political survival before the national interest”, as demonstrated by “his inability to recover the hostages” in the hands of of the Palestinian militias or “their abandonment of the communities in northern Israel” in the face of attacks by the Lebanese Hezbollah militias.

Another opposition leader, Moshe Radman, explained in statements reported by the ‘Times of Israel’ that elections are the only way to “restore hope to the Israeli population” and has asked Netanyahu not to be afraid “because only a dictator “he would be afraid of his own people.”

The demonstrations will begin tomorrow, hours before a large protest in front of the Israeli Parliament around 7:00 p.m. and new marches on Tuesday and Wednesday night. On Thursday there will be a rally in front of Netanyahu’s residences in Jerusalem and Caesarea.
