June 4, 2012 21:45

Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovich late Monday stated that irresponsible public discussion over the migrant issue has led to violence against them, according to Army Radio.

Speaking at a ceremony honoring fallen Israel Police officers in Kiryat Ata, Aharonovich said "public officials who can't keep their mouths shut... are trying to cover up their incompetence in recent years by riding the wave of hate and populism."
