#AceNewsServices – Nov.10 – The police shot and killed a 22-year-old man from the northern Arab village of Kafr Kana in the early hours of Saturday morning, after he allegedly attacked a police car with a knife.
However, CCTV footage may contradict the officers’ statement that a warning shot was fired in the air before the man was fatally wounded you can judge for yourselves.
A large protest was held in the Galilee village on Saturday to protest the shooting.
At its climax, clashes erupted between stone throwers and the large police force stationed nearby. A general strike among Israeli Arabs was announced by The Higher Arab Monitoring Committee, which called on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to fire Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch.
However, Netanyahu backed the officers and harshly criticized the protesters in Kafr Kana. “Israel is a state of law,” he said. “We won’t tolerate disturbances and riots.We will take action against stone throwers, those who block traffic arteries, and those who call for establishing a Palestinian state in place of the State of Israel.
Whoever does not respect Israeli law will be punished to the fullest extent.
I will direct the interior minister to consider stripping the citizenship of those who call for the destruction of the State of Israel.”
