Danino: Mass protests likely following Palestinian UN bid

Israel Police Chief Insp.-Gen. said Monday there was a large possibility for mass demonstrations after the Palestinian Authority petitions the UN for statehood recognition on September 20, and said that police have been instructed to treat protesters no differently than those who had engaged in social protests and tent demonstrations this past summer.
Speaking at the 11th Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya at the World Summit on Counter-Terrorism, Danino said "should there be a declaration of the Palestinian state, it will most likely be accompanied with widespread protests also within Israeli territory and by Israeli residents." Danino encouraged protesters to behave at demonstrations "according to the law," stressing that any violation of law shall be dealt with by police "without compromise," Army Radio reported.
