Thousands of Israelis demonstrated Saturday at various places against Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who is being tried for corruption, as the country goes to the polls Tuesday.

If he loses, and if the courts convict him, he could go to jail like his predecessor, Ehud Olmert. The biggest demonstration was staged in Jerusalem in front of the prime minister’s official residence, with an estimated 20,000 joining in. It was the largest such rally since they began last week.
