Palestinians suffocate as Israeli police attack protest inside Arab town in Israel

KAFR QARA, Wednesday, January 6, 2021 (WAFA) - At least four Palestinians suffocated by tear gas, and three others were detained as Israeli police attacked a protest in Kafr Qara, an Arab town inside Israel, held against the failure of the Israeli police to put a stop to the rise in crime among the indigenous Palestinian population in Israel.

A Palestinian was shot dead Tuesday night in what marked the third murder in the community since the start of the year.

Palestinians in Israel accuse the police and government of discriminating against them and not doing enough to stop crime in their towns compared to Jewish towns.

Several protests and calls by the Palestinians in Israel, who make up more than 20 percent of the Israeli population, on the government and police to fight the rise in crime in their towns have not yet yielded any significant results with less than a fifth of the crimes be resolved or criminals apprehended.
