On Saturday, the Israeli police arrested four suspects with connection to an attack on the police in the Israeli Arab town of Kfar Qasim on Friday. 

Caught on security camera footage, officers were seen being attacked by young men as they attempted to arrest an individual (wanted in connection with an earlier attack, according to the Israel Police) at the entrance to a building in the town.

In the video footage, it is seen that the crowd starts shouting and pushing, following which an officer tasers one of the men, who then punches the officer to the ground. Another man exits the building and grabs an officer around the neck, attempting to pull him off the suspect. Israel Police Commissioner Maj. Gen. Yaakov Shabtai said in response to the incident, “I have instructed the district command of the area to act decisively and firmly and lay hands on anyone who took part in the incident, and we will provide them with all the means and forces required,” said Shabtai.

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett also weighed in on the matter, saying, “I stand alongside the police officers who were violently attacked in Kfar Qasim. Violence in the Arab sector has reached an intolerable point. I expect the Arab sector, which is asking for the state to intervene, to give the police its support and backing,” he said.
