Opponents and supporters of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took to the streets Saturday evening after the country's attorney general said he intended to file graft charges against him.
In central Tel Aviv, Netanyahu loyalists waved blue and white Israel flags and carried placards reading "Netanyahu, the people are with you" and "Netanyahu, my prime minister".
Separated from them by a police cordon, opponents waved signs proclaiming "Crime Minister" and "Time for Netanyahu to Go", an AFP photographer said.
Police declined to give an estimate of numbers.
Under Israeli law the premier is not obliged to resign unless he is charged, convicted and loses all appeals, a lengthy process.
