Centers for Racism Vic Timms office bearers urged to stop killing people in the name of color. The policy of prejudice and killing of Arabs, Ethiopians and blacks must be stopped. “We are targeting Israel’s minorities in general and the Arab community in particular, the police, the security forces and the armed forces,” Sener alleged.
Israeli police shot and killed the unarmed and heterosexual Iyad al-Hallaq. The 32-year-old was an employee of the Old City Special School. He was killed in the Old City of East Jerusalem. The police thought that Hallach had a gun-like weapon. However, a police spokesperson later revealed that the weapon was not found.
