Public Security Minister Omer Barlev describes the private security guards at the Kafr Qasim municipality who assaulted police officers as a “local militia,” in a statement expressing support for the cops.

“I’m proud of the officers,” Barlev writes on Twitter, “they acted exactly as is expected of a police officer in Israel.”

“The suspects who were arrested and anyone who thinks he can lift a hand against those in uniform will be brought to justice,” he adds.
