Herzog brands Arab crime wave ‘civilian terror,’ says it’s Israel’s main current challenge

President Isaac Herzog brands the wave of violent crime in the Arab community “civilian terrorism,” saying the country is in an “emergency situation.”

“The civilian terrorism harms the Arab society first and foremost, but it doesn’t stop there,” Herzog tweets. “Like terror tends to do, it doesn’t have boundaries. Murder after murder, women and men, of every age, and today — what seems like a massacre in Yafa an-Naseriyye.

“We mustn’t stand idly. Worlds are being destroyed, entire families are being crushed. This is one of the most central challenges facing the State of Israel, and we must urgently act against civilian terrorism in every way and while involving all bodies.”
