May 3, 2015 23:00

Some two hours after a Tel Aviv anti-police brutality protest turned violent, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a statement calling for calm.

"There is room to examine all the allegations," he said on Sunday, "but there is no place for this type of violence and breaking of the law."

Netanyahu spoke in the evening with Public Security Ministry Yitzhak Aharonovitch, and is scheduled to convene a meeting in his office Monday with the Ethiopian IDF soldier videoed being beaten by police, as well as with representatives of all the relevant bodies, including the police, welfare authorities, and representatives of the Ethiopian community, absorption, interior and public security ministries.
