Regavim movement demanded that the IDF and the border police take immediate action to ensure the safety of the residents of the Negev.
According to Arutz Sheva, the demand for the movement came against the backdrop of ongoing Bedouin riots in the south of the country.
& quot; During the riots during the operation “Guardian of the Walls” in May 2021, the security service reacted too slowly and too late. The highways and roads of the Negev burned for several days in a row before the security forces managed to restore calm. We must not allow these events to happen again, which is why we demand the immediate and active involvement of the IDF and the Border Police, ”said Meir Deutsch, CEO of Regavim.
Deutsch emphasized,“ The nightmarish scenarios of the latter two days in the Negev is a direct result of the government's capitulation in the afforestation project. As we predicted, giving in to the violence and blackmail of the RAAM party will inevitably lead to an increase in violence.
He also noted that the “shocking statements of officials” ; only ignite the fire that engulfed the Negev.
“It's time to take responsibility; it's time to take a closer look and learn the hard lessons — right now before things get even more out of control,” Meir Deutsch said.
