A blow-up doll of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wearing a crown has been placed in Tel Aviv's Habima Square by student protesters from the southern city of Sderot, just days before elections.

The students, who have been protesting for days about the security situation in the South and the continued rocket fire from Gaza, placed the doll on the floor in the square so that people can say a "final goodbye" to him before the election on Tuesday.

They also jokingly put a charity box next to it to pay for his "legal representation" as he faces legal troubles.

The two students, who erected the life-sized Bibi doll and are studying animation at Sapir College, told Channel 12 News that they put it there to allow the public to have a final chance to "say goodbye" to the prime minister and "give him a hug" as elections draw closer.



"He introduces himself as Mr. Security," students Yael Solomonovich and Paz Bernstein told Channel 12. "[But] just like you have a [teddy]bear when you're a little child [to make you feel safe], [and] it doesn't really help you, he [Netanyahu]... introduces himself as the only thing that will protect us at night."

The cities residents, including opposition supporters, stopped by the doll while walking past to take selfies with it and find out more about what it was doing there.
