Ex-police chief Moshe Karadi says law enforcement has information that “the other side” intends to plant agitators at tonight’s anti-government demonstration in Tel Aviv.

“Elements from the other side sometimes plant rioters in demonstrations for the sake of provocation and there is information on this matter in this demonstration as well,” the Kan public broadcaster cites Karadi as saying at a conference in Beersheba.

Police on Thursday warned against potential unrest during the protests.

Karadi also downplays reports of potential unrest, saying it is “fake news from certain elements,” despite an official police announcement on the matter.
