(Worthy News) – Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit has upheld the Shin Bet security agency’s use of mobile-phone tracking technology to monitor and threaten Palestinian protesters at Jerusalem’s most sensitive holy site last year.
The decision, which came on Tuesday, drew harsh criticism from the civil rights group that challenged the use of the technology. The group warned that it would have a “chilling effect” on the country’s Arab minority.
The attorney general’s move was in response to a complaint about a series of text messages sent out last May during a series of clashes between Palestinian protesters and police at the Al Aqsa Mosque, which helped spark an 11-day war between Israel and Hamas. [ Source: YNet News (Read More…) ]
