Hundreds of Israeli Palestinians gathered in front of Nazareth city's Northern District police headquarters on Tuesday, to decry violence in their communities.
Protesters also brought coffins and placed them in front of the building drawing police attention to the crimes.
Member of Knesset, Aida Touma-Sliman, complained about the lack of action from the police in fighting the crimes and pledged that the protest movement will continue until the Israeli Palestinians are safe.
The organisers of the event, Committee Against Violence in Nazareth, reportedly intend to bring the case to the UN and the High Court of Justice.
