Public Security Minister Aaron Aharonovich has called for establishing a new police unity, a unit that will be responsible for cracking down on “Price Tag” and other Jewish law-breakers. The minister feels that the sharp increase in hate attacks during recent months believed to have been perpetrated by Jews compels his hand, hence the new unit.
Aharonovich explained the state will not tolerate these acts, and the special unit will focus on these attacks and bring them to a halt. The minister’s actions follow last week’s attack against a Latrun Monastery.
