CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - Israeli polling stations throughout the country will be under the watchful eye of plainclothes policemen on Election Day Tuesday.
Some 16,000 uniformed and plainclothes officers, bolstered by more than 4,500 security guards and 2,500 police volunteers, could face varied challenges, depending on the precinct location.
In the south, the potential of rocket attacks is always to be factored in. Skirmishes with the local Bedouin population are also a possibility.
Potential disruptions in towns with large Arab populations, such as Ramle and Lod, and cities with mixed populations, such as Jaffa, will keep police on heightened alert.
A polling station in the northern Arab city of Umm el-Fahm may be a particularly volatile location if far-right activist Baruch Marzel decides to oversee it.
The Central Elections Committee, backed by the High Court, decided to allow Marzel to oversee the polling station, despite the potential for provocation.
