The police appear to have changed their policy for handling conflict with social protesters, requiring the approval of high-ranking law enforcement officers before indictments or requests for remanding suspects to custody are filed against protesters, Army Radio reported Wednesday.

According to the report, an internal document of new directives sent to all law enforcement officials involved in handling social justice protests said that the police must learn lessons from the public outcry against their arrest of protest leader Daphni Leef and dozens of other protesters.The police response was widely perceived as unnecessarily heavy-handed.
