A bill that would make flying an enemy flag punishable by a year in jail passes an initial reading in the Knesset.
The bill, sponsored by far-right Otzma Yehudit MK Almog Cohen, passes 54-16.
The bill also outlaws flying flags of countries or organizations that ban the flying of the Israeli flag.
The bill now heads to the Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee, after which it must pass a further three votes.
The bill is part of a series of right-wing initiatives to punish “incitement,” including the national security minister’s January attempt to ban Palestinian flags in public places.
