Live fire against some stone-throwers among new police rules of engagement

Portions of the police’s classified new intifada rules of engagement approved by then-attorney-general Yehuda Weinstein in September 2015 to combat a wave of violence have been publicized, the NGO Adalah announced on Monday.

The parts of the rules which were made public came under pressure from a petition by Adalah to the Lod District Court in its administrative court capacity.

A hearing was set for July 17, but the police and the state moved to publicize aspects of its rules of engagement before the hearing, hoping to convince Adalah, or the court, to dismiss the rest of the petition regarding aspects of the rules that they wish to keep classified.
