Following a national crime wave involving lethal stabbings by youths, northern district police officers embarked on a large-scale weekend operation against youth violence, knives, and alcohol, arresting no fewer than 75 minors for a variety of suspected offenses.

The operation came following a directive from Police commissioner Insp.-Gen. Yochanan Danino, who ordered all districts to crack down on street violence and boost visibility in entertainment districts.
