Police commissioner Ch.-Insp. Yochanan Danino on Tuesday, responding to recent hate crimes carried out by far-right elements, said the offenses were severe and had to be stopped. "Attacking religious symbols and holy sites is a grave and explosive phenomenon, which has consequences for the wider public," he said.

Danino passed down orders to police to do all that was possible to arrest the perpetrators, and to invest high levels of resources "to bring the criminals to justice and place them behind bars."

So far, two people have been charged for far-right hate crimes. Last year, police set up a national taskforce operating under the Lahav 433 unit to oversee efforts to arrest suspects.
