On Saturday evening, August 5, on the square mountain in Petah Tikva, not far from the house legal adviser to the government, about two thousand people demand from Avia Mandelblit to indict the Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu.
Due to the fact that the previous day, 4 August, the public Prosecutor’s office signed an agreement with the former chief of staff of the Prime Minister’s office Ari Haro on granting it the status of a state’s witness, this week the house Mandelblit expected strong gathering of people.
Simultaneously with the demonstration of opponents of Netanyahu on the other side of the street is the rally of supporters of the Prime Minister, which this time will be headed by the head of the coalition David Bitan. About his presence at the rally announced and other members of the coalition. This rally gathered about 100 people.
We will remind that the day before the signing of the agreement with Ari Haro, the Israeli media reported that, according to the court, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is suspected of bribery and betrayal of public trust. Immediately after the news appeared in the media, the magistrate’s court in Rishon LeZion issued an injunction on the publication of any details of the negotiations with Ari Haro and his lawyers to grant him the status of a state witness on business 1000 and 2000. A new ban was issued by the court two days later after approved the request of the police banning the publication of any details relating to a «matter of submarines» («case of 3000»).
On the evening of 4 August, the Israeli government led by Benjamin Netanyahu commented on his page on Facebook, the recent events connected with the police investigation of the so-called Affairs of 1.000, 2.000 and 3.000. Netanyahu said it does not comment on the background noise and continues to work for the good of society.

At the same time with the latest protest, held last week, was a demonstration of the inhabitants of Petach-Tikva, protesting against weekly demonstrations.
