Al Jazeera — The head of Israel’s internal security service, the Shin Bet, has reportedly resisted pressure to increase surveillance on the growing protest movement against Netanyahu’s government in Israel.

In a report in Israel’s Haaretz newspaper, a government official is quoted as saying that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the country’s far-right National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir have expressed expectations that the Shin Bet will “use its tools against parts of the protest [movement]”.

“They want to turn it into a thought police,” the unnamed official is quoted as saying.
