Adalah – The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel filed a complaint with the Police Investigation Unit (PIU), on behalf of a number of protesters who participated in the events of Nakba Day in Majdal Shams, who argued that many police officers acted violently against them. The complaint, drafted by the Attorney Orna Cohen of Adalah, lists several cases of throwing stun grenades and tear gas on protesters, kicking and punching the faces of protesters, throwing a demonstrator on horse manure, and spraying pepper spray at the face of a demonstrator from close range.

A petition by human rights organisations Adalah, and the Association for Civil Rights in Israel, shows that the city of Netzert Illit disregards a ruling by the High Court of Justice (“Bagatz”) from 8 years ago, which mandates cities to put signs in the Arabic language in their jurisdiction.
