Jerusalem: Protests in Israel against police violence Several protests took place in Tel Aviv. Protests broke out in the city after police shot dead Palestinian citizen Iyad al Hallak in Jerusalem early Saturday morning.
Israeli police shot and killed unarmed Iyad al-Hallak, who was close to him. The 32-year-old was an employee of the Old City Special School. He was killed in the Old City in East Jerusalem. The police thought that Hallock had a gun-like weapon. However, a police spokesman later revealed that the weapon was not found. The police fired at the man, who was trying to follow the young man who had crossed the line and stopped.
Office bearers of the Center for Racism, Vic Timms, have called for an end to the killing of Arabs, Ethiopians and blacks in the country. “The police, security guards and the armed forces are targeting the minorities in Israel in general and the Arabs in particular,” the center alleged.
