The Cabinet, this evening approved a decision that significantly expands the investigative and judicial tools available to the security forces and law enforcement authorities against so-called ‘Price Tag’ actions.

In its decision, the Cabinet authorized Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon to use his authority under defense regulations to declare ‘Price Tag’ activists an illegal association. This will significantly strengthen the ability to fight ‘Price Tag’ phenomena.

At the same time, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni will continue to advance prevention of terrorism legislation that will – inter alia – deal with the issue.
