Police to deploy several hundred officers ahead of Land Day

Police will deploy several hundred officers to patrol Land Day protests in the northern District over the weekend, National Police Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said Thursday.
Rosenfeld said police do not have any special guidelines for this year, adding that their protective measures are the same as each year for Land Day, and that their patrols will be outside of the towns where the protests are scheduled, and are being done in coordination with the organizers of the protests.
While Land Day has traditionally been a day of lively protests in the Israeli Arab sector, in recent years it has been largely eclipsed by Nakba Day.
