Police official says settler protests are way too violent | Israel | Jerusalem Post

The recent violent clashes between settlers and security forces trying to enforce a construction ban in the settlements “went beyond legitimate protest and freedom of expression,” police Insp.-Gen. David Cohen said on Thursday.

Cohen used a weekly evaluation at the National Police Headquarters in Jerusalem to discuss the events of the past few weeks.

He said a “severe rise” in violent incidents involving settlers had been noted, adding that “the significant threats toward law enforcement… have crossed the line.”
