Rivlin laments needless violence in Rahat

President Reuven Rivlin on Monday telephoned Rahat Mayor Talal al-Krenawi to lament the needless clashes and violence in the Beduin town and nearby villages in the Negev in recent days.

Rivlin also expressed condolences over the death of Rahat resident Sami al-Ajar who died last week of an abdominal gunshot wound after police arrived to conduct a potential drug bust.

Several people were hurt in the clashes, and one died of a heart attack that was possibly the result of the severe tensions between the police and the people of Rahat.
