Israel: 183% increase in applications of permit to carry weapons

A recent report revealed that the number of applications made by Israelis to obtain permits to carry personal weapons increased during the past two months by 183 per cent compared to the same period of last year.

The increase in the number of requests for permits to carry weapons came following Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan’s decision to ease regular restrictions imposed on that sort of security authorisations, Haaretz newspaper reported Thursday.

In August, Erdan announced the ministry’s resolution to simplify the permits granting procedure for Israelis, particularly in areas close to the zones populated by Palestinians and to the border.

Since then, 2,800 Israeli citizens have applied for permits to carry weapons, which marked a 183 per cent increase compared to the same period of last year.
