Israelis took to the streets for the tenth week straight in the largest demonstration in the country’s history on Saturday, with organizers claiming as many as 500,000 pro-democracy protesters in attendence nationwide.

A record 50,000 Israelis rallied in Haifa – according to police estimates –while at least 8,000 demonstrated in the southern city of Be’er Sheva, which is considered a Likud stronghold. Opposition leader Yair Lapid told the crowd there that Israel “is facing the greatest crisis in its history.

“A wave of terrorism is hitting us, our economy is crashing, money is escaping the country. Iran just signed yesterday a new agreement with Saudi Arabia. But the only thing this government cares about is crushing Israeli democracy,” he said.

In the central city of Netanya, hundreds of red-clad ‘handmaids’ held a silent vigil as large crowds gathered. Leading the city’s protesters in chants of “We are all Ami Eshed,” former Labor leader Amram Mitzna voiced solidarity with the dismissed Tel Aviv district commander, who was ousted from his post on Thursday by Police Commissioner Kobi Shabtai under pressure from National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir over his lenient policy toward protesters.
