The Knesset's Internal Affairs Committee will hold an urgent meeting on Sunday afternoon to discuss the ongoing riots in Acre between the city's Jewish and Arab residents. The meeting will be attended by Knesset members, police officials including commander of the Acre station and the Galilee District commander, as well as Jamal Taufik, the driver who drove through a Jewish neighborhood on Yom Kippur that is blamed for instigating the riots. Director-general of the city's Festival of Alternative Theater, Albert Ben-Chelouche, is also expected to attend. The Acre Municipality decided Friday to postpone the festival, which was scheduled to take place on Succot, due to the clashes.
