Meanwhile, the police’s
Coastal (Hof) District in the North has deployed large numbers of officers to
prevent any possible Jewish- Arab clashes ahead of Yom Kippur.
Patrol Officers, Border Police and ordinary civilian patrol units have taken up
positions around mixed Jewish-Arab cities such as Acre, where days of violent
clashes erupted on Yom Kippur in 2008. Police have also taken up positions on
Route 65 and in the Wadi Ara region.
The units have been tasked to
“prevent the outbreak of disturbances and break up clashes,” police said. Police
are concerned that small incidents, such as an attack on a mosque or a
synagogue, could set off further violence in the North and have set up positions
to guard places of worship.
