Political activists from the Labor party demonstrated outside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's residence on Balfour Street in Jerusalem on Friday.



The group of demonstrators left the Tel Aviv area at 11 a.m. and slowly made their way to Jerusalem. Black flags waved from demonstrators' cars along with posters reading Yom Schachor (Black Day), implying that the announcement of Netanyahu's likely indictment has caused a black day in Israel.


"This is a black day for Israel. Netanyahu, you are disgracing us. Resign and put an end to this national disgrace," the Labor party said in a statement.
 
As the line of cars reached the Prime Minister's residence, they slowly passed his house while loudly honking their horns.
