Campaigning in the the largely Bedouin town of Rahat, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vows to transfer another NIS 1 billion to beef up law enforcement in Arab towns.

“We have already transferred NIS 150 million to the Arab society to increase enforcement against crime. I pledge to transfer another billion shekels to give personal security to all Arab citizens of Israel,” he says.

“You deserve to live in Rahat and in every community without mothers being afraid to send their children to the streets… We’ll get rid of this. Enough!” he says.
