Nonprofit says it’s ‘horrified’ by Galilee ‘massacre,’ calls for Ben Gvir’s dismissal

The Abraham Initiatives nonprofit, which monitors violent crime in the Arab community, says the “massacre” in Yafa an-Naseriyye has raised the number of homicide victims this year to 97.

“We are horrified by the massacre of five people in broad daylight and wish a full and speedy recovery to the toddler who was injured today from gunfire,” it says in a statement.

The nonprofit also calls for the dismissal of National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir, and urges Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to immediately convene a ministerial panel set up to tackle the wave of violent crime in the Arab community.

“We call on the prime minister — there is no time! Convene the ministerial committee today and start working. Every day Ben Gvir is the national security minister is a day in which the circle of blood widens.”
