Southern police gear up for far-Right march on Sunday

The head of Israel's southern police district, Cmdr. Yoahanan Danino, has approved a request by far-Right activists Itamar Ben-Gvir and Baruch Marzel to hold a march in the Beduin town of Rahat in the Negev this coming Sunday. The march will be confined to a set route that was agreed upon in advance by police and the marchers. Police preparations for the march are being overseen by Negev sub-district head Dep.-Cmdr. Avhsalom Peled. Beduin leaders have in the meantime submitted requests to police to gain approval for a number of counter-protests on Saturday and Sunday. The requests are expected to receive approval, police said. Officers have been instructed to respond to any act of provocation or attempt at incitement from any side, police added.
