Police confirmed on Sunday that they have approved a request by far right leaders National Union MK Michael Ben-Ari, Ben Gvir, Baruch Marzel and about 80 followers to hold a protest in Nazareth against the fact that Israeli-Arabs do not serve in the IDF.

Ben-Ari said that Israeli-Arabs also have an obligation to serve and that they should equally bare the burden of military-national service born by all Israelis.

The protest is expected to create a backlash and counter-protests from the Israeli-Arab sector.

Ben-Ari and his followers have launched similar protests in the past and the police have limited the scope of their activities sin order to try to reduce the potential for clashes between opposing groups.
