1,165 Arab citizens of Israel murdered since 2000, Arab mayor says

Despite the issue being on the policy agenda for the past few years, crime in the Arab sector is not being properly dealt with, according to speakers at a meeting on Wednesday in the Knesset Internal Affairs and Environment Committee.

During the meeting, which was held at the request of MKs Osama Saadi (Joint List), Mickey Levy (Yesh Atid) and Esawi Frej (Meretz), Sakhnin Mayor Mazen Ganaim noted that 1,165 Arab citizens have been murdered since 2000.

”Some people claim that heads of local authorities do not cooperate, but this is not true,” he argued.
