Fresh protests are to be held in Tel Aviv tonight against law enforcement’s handling of a probe into a deadly hit-and-run that killed a boy several months ago.

The protest will be held in Kaplan Street, the site of recent mass anti-government demonstrations.

The protesters, led by members of the Ethiopian community, have accused authorities of racism and leniency toward the driver who hit four-year-old Rafael Adana in May.

Adana’s mother called on demonstrators to remain calm after an officer was stabbed and 10 people were arrested at a protest in Tel Aviv last week.

“I call on all those who are coming to demonstrate tonight, to join my struggle for Rafael, for the truth, in a peaceful way,” she says.”Please respect this.”
