Public Security Minister Omer Barlev renews his calls for the far-right Lehava and La Familia groups to be outlawed.

Barlev says he had sought such action even before becoming a cabinet minister.

“There is no question that the events two days ago during the Flag March are jarring for most of Israeli society and have no place [in it],” he says.
