The son of Prime Minsiter Benjamin Netanyahu, Yair, compared the Black Flag protesters to ISIS in a video published on Facebook, borrowing from an old Likud Party election campaign video to illustrate his point. The video was later deleted from his Facebook account.
In response, the Black Flag movement responded to the video by referring to Yair as a paraiste, saying "he compares the black flags to ISIS: Netanyahu the Elder is a failure in [managing] Corona, the economy and a general failure. A good father would allow his son to live an independent life and receive the care he needs."
Likewise, A caravan of protesters with huge submarine and F-35 props gathered Saturday calling for an investigation into the submarine affair. The caravan was organized by The Black Flags movement and Investigation Now.

Caravan participants gathered at two locations in the center of the country and drove towards Israel's High Court of Justice, according to Walla News. Participants will later join protests outside of the Prime Minister's Jerusalem residence on Balfour Street.
The caravan includes over 100 vehicles according to Haaretz.
Large crowds gathered in front of the Kirya military headquarters as the caravan passed it waving flags and chanting. Protesters sang a song calling for investigations and waved black, pink and Israeli flags.
One protest leader called for an effective investigation of the affair claiming that the prob Gantz announced last week is not enough.

The submarine affair is an ongoing scandal involving a multi-billion submarine deal with Germany’s Thyssenkrupp AG conglomerate in 2016, also dubbed Case 3000, in which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu allegedly played a role.

Prosecutors allege that senior Israeli officials were bribed to advocate for the purchase of submarines and military boats from Thyssenkrupp. The scandal involves the sale of Dolphin-class submarines and anti-submarine warships by Germany to Egypt, allegedly approved by Netanyahu without informing the Defense Ministry.
"The citizens of the state deserve hope and unity, and a government that passes a budget as well as working for the citizens," the Black Flag Movement said in a statement. "The tens of thousands of citizens who continue to leave even in difficult weather conditions show how tired the citizens are of the government."
