Israel Police walked back its demand from the organizers of the Mitzpeh Ramon Pride Parade in southern Israel to place a two-meter-high (about 6.7 feet) tarp fence around its Pride event complex scheduled for this coming Friday. The police initially justified its demand because procedures require that at private events a controlled area be established but withdrew its claims on Sunday due to Haaretz’s query. Moshe Zarihan, the commander of the Dimona police station, informed the parade organizers that the police will place a lower fence as was the case in the previous two parades. The police also withdrew their demand for security guards and will station police officers instead.
