Attorney General, Gali Baharav-Miara, ordered the police to testify against Fogel, a member of the far-right Jewish Power Party, on charges of “inciting terrorism”.
In a statement on the matter, Itamar Ben-Gvir, leader of Fogel’s Jewish Force party and Minister of National Security, accused the Attorney General of “applying a double standard in his approach to the right and left in the country”. Ben-Gvir argued that this is a “clear example of the necessity” of government regulation of the judiciary, which limits the powers of the judiciary and is heavily debated by the public.
Settlers’ attacks on Huwvar
Israeli soldiers raided Nablus, in the north of the occupied West Bank, from several points on February 22, and intervened with live bullets against the protesting Palestinians. In the incident, 11 Palestinians, including a child and two elderly, lost their lives.
After two Jewish settlers were killed in an armed attack on Sunday in the northern town of Huwwara in the West Bank, hundreds of fanatical Jews came to Huwwara under the supervision of the Israeli army and carried out mass revenge attacks against the Palestinians.
Settlers had set fire to dozens of houses and cars in the town, attacked Palestinians and killed 1 person. It was reported that the Israeli army did not prevent these attacks of the Jewish settlers, but used force against the Palestinians.
Fogel, a member of the coalition led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and known for his racist policies against the Palestinians, said: “Huwara is surrounded and on fire. Here is exactly the view I want to see” and “The deterrence achieved in Huwara, the Defense Shield (executed by the Israeli army in 2002)” It had not been obtained in the West Bank since Operation.” had used the words.
