Kamal al-Khatib, the head of the Freedoms Board of the High Follow-Up Committee for Arab Citizens of Israel, says he submitted a complaint to the police after receiving death threats from "racist" factors.

In a video he published, al-Khatib, who was the deputy chairman of the Israeli Islamic Movement's outlawed northern faction, said that since the Hamas attack, "our nation in the Palestinian interior" (i.e. Israel) has been under an attack unprecedented since 1948.

According to him, since the war and state of emergency were declared, the state's policy regarding the Arabs is in accordance with the emergency government, in this framework, the freedom of speech is harmed, and the right to gather and protest is thwarted.

Al-Khatib says he does not trust the police to work on the matter and emphasizes that the threats against him do not bother him and would not change his faith.

Al-Khatib concludes his words by saying that he is faithful to Islam and proud to belong to the Palestinian nation and that salvation is closer than ever and Islam is close to winning this conflict.
