AG says 'true concern' Ben-Gvir overstepped authority

National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir may have overstepped his authority by handing down specific operational directives to the police while he is only permitted to establish general policies, including on anti-government demonstrations, Attorney General Gali Baharav Miara said late Wednesday.
In response to petitions submitted to the High Court of Justice, Baharav Miara stated that police officers and commanders in the field have the freedom to exercise independent and professional judgment to carry out their duties.
"There's a real concern that the minister's conduct crossed the line," she said.
