Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino on Tuesday accused activists that participated in Saturday’s social protest that the violence and law infractions that occurred were premeditated.
On Saturday, Israel’s social protest turned violent as thousands of Israelis clashed with police, blocked roads, and smashed bank windows.
“What we saw was not a popular protest but a planned web of events including law infractions and violence,” Danino said.
He called on leaders of Israel’s social protest to coordinate their plans with the police in order to “return to sanity.”
“I do not want to spoil anything for those who call themselves the leaders of the protest,” Danino said. “Do not put the police at the front, we are not your address.
