20,000 cops to secure Israel’s national election

Twenty thousand police officers will be deployed on election day Tuesday to secure the vote, with cops stationed outside ballot stations flagged as potential flashpoints, the Kan public broadcaster reports.

Undercover agents will also ensure there is no election tampering, the report says.

Police will also be on the lookout for violators of quarantine and COVID-19 patients who show up to cast their ballot at the general polling stations, rather than specially designated spots for those in quarantine.
