Thousands protest Netanyahu-Gantz alliance deal ahead of trial

Thousands in Tel Aviv have protested a coalition deal between prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his rival Benny Gantz, one day before the supreme court began examining the legitimacy of the deal.

The deal will entail shared premiership among the two politicians, each being allocated 18 months in office.
