TAYBEH, Sunday, December 4, 2022 (WAFA) – Scores of Palestinians in Taybeh, an Arab city in central Israel, demonstrated this evening in condemnation of the failure of the Israeli police to put a stop to the rise in crime in Arab communities in Israel.

Protesters, including families of the victims, closed the crossroad in Taybeh to express their condemnation of the rising crime in the Arab communities in Israel and chanted slogans denouncing the Israeli police inaction and accusing the police of being an accomplice to criminal gangs.

This came following the recent killing of a Palestinian youth inside his workplace in al-Taybeh city.

Demonstrators stressed their rejection of violence and the rampant crimes taking place in Arab communities inside Israel and the police’s inaction to combat violence and crimes.

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.
