Israeli Police Train To Fight W. Bank Jews
TEL AVIV [MENL] -- The Israeli police conducted an unprecedented exercise
meant to counter Arab and Jewish unrest in 2009.
About 6,000 officers participated in a Dec. 18 exercise meant to
simulate the demolition of a Jewish community in the West Bank as well as
riots in Arab towns. The officers were divided into law enforcement
personnel and Jewish resistors in the largest exercise by the force.
"This marked a successful end to a comprehensive training regime for
police forces," Police Commissioner Inspector-General David Cohen said.
