Fight in Turan: Nearly 160 detainees in violent incidents in the village

Police arrested nearly 160 people yesterday (Saturday) in a violent brawl that broke out in the village of Turan in the Galilee. The brawl broke out as a result of a long conflict between two families in the village – Dahla and Adawi, against the background of the local elections. A man was slightly injured in the fight yesterday, after he was apparently shot in the legs.

The many arrests yesterday are in addition to the arrest of 11 others in the village over the weekend, some of whom were caught with various weapons, including a Carlo rifle, a launch gun, Molotov cocktails and a grenade. The detention of those suspects was extended in the Magistrate’s Court at the request of the police.

The conflict began in the 2018 local elections, in which Mazen Adawi won. About a year later, in November 2019, Falah Dahla was assassinated while trying to separate in a brawl and in May 2020, apparently in retaliation, the nephew of Council Chairman Mahmoud Maid Adawi was assassinated.
