Officials in the Otzma Yehudit party have announced plans to purchase equipment that will be used to monitor and document acts of terror against Israel police and other agencies by Arabs during violent clashes and unrests. In the video, party leader, former MK Dr. Michael Ben-Ari speaks of the planned purchase of cameras and drones to use to document violence from above so that recordings can later be used to arrest attackers who threw rocks at security forces.
Otzma Yehudit feels the state is maintaining too light a policy against stone-throwers and it hopes to use the equipment to document attacks against those seeking to harm security forces so with the evidence, criminal indictments can be filed.
