    Officials in Ramallah have officially informed the IDF Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) that it will no longer pay for electricity used by residents of Gaza. The announcement comes amid a growing power struggle dispute between Abu Mazen and the Hamas-controlled Gaza regime. Israel Electric Company supplies about 30% of Gaza’s electricity, costing about NIS 40 million monthly. The amount is deducted from tax revenue funds which Israel transfers to the PA (Palestinian Authority). In Gaza, officials retorted they will not be intimidated by Fatah officials in Ramallah, insisting they will not buckle under pressure. Tensions are mounting between the rival Fatah and Hamas factions, with each seeking ways to undermine and harm the other. The announcement from PA Chairmen Abu Mazen concerning electricity is just the latest PA move in the ongoing fight between Ramallah and Gaza. (YWN – Israel Desk, Jerusalem)

  • (4)Ural Airlines Inaugurates Moscow-Tel Aviv Flight

    The Tourism Ministry is working with airlines in Russia to incentivize them to open new routes into Israel, using grants and marketing assistance, while at the same time working with tour operators and wholesalers. Most of the large and medium-size tour operators in Russia are already offering vacation packages to Israel. The Tourism Ministry in Russia recently launched the Two Cities One Break campaign, designed to encourage incoming tourism to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem in particular. Half of the campaign’s 3 million euro budget has been allocated to advertising on TV, radio, billboards and print media, with the other half to online marketing. The marketing program is concentrated on Moscow, St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Samara. The Tourism Ministry Director-General Amir Halevi held a series of meetings about a month ago at the MITT tourism trade fair in Moscow with airline companies and tour operators, presenting the ministry incentive programs alongside the business potential of Israeli tourism. In addition to this week’s inaugural flight, Ural Airlines, Russia’s second largest airline, recently began operating a twice-weekly route between Sochi and Tel Aviv and this summer will also operate flights to Tel Aviv from Krasnodar, Yekaterinburg and Samara. In the last two years, in the shadow of the economic crisis in Russia and the geo-political crises in the Middle East, the Tourism Ministry in Russia and the CIS has successfully marketed Israel with campaigns costing millions of shekels. The office was recently awarded a prize for being the “most active tourism office in Russia” by the Russian Tour Operators Association and the head of the ministry’s office in Moscow, Ksenia Kobyakov, was invited to give a presentation to government leaders in Moscow and the surrounding region about the success of positioning Eilat as a winter tourism destination for Russian visitors. Despite these crises, the numbers of incoming tourists from Russia has actually increased by 35% in the first quarter of 2017 on the same period in 2016. The hotels in Tel Aviv are also reporting tens of percent increase in overnight stays by Russian tourists compared to the same period last year. Thanks to the incentive of 45 euro per passenger flying into Eilat given to Ural Airlines by the Tourism Ministry, the company is operating three weekly flights into the resort this winter season through to May 28: two from Moscow and one from St. Petersburg. In the first quarter 2017, there was an increase of 130% in the number of Russian tourists staying in Eilat. (YWN – Israel Desk, Jerusalem)

  • (6)NYPD Deploys Body-Worn Cameras In The Washington Heights Neighborhood Of Manhattan

    Today the New York City Police Department began the rollout of its police officer body-worn camera (BWC) pilot program in the 34 Precinct, covering the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan. The Vievu cameras will initially be worn by each of the approximately 50 officers on patrol assigned to the 4 P.M. to midnight shift. The rollout will continue to additional precincts through the end of 2017, with a total of 5,000 cameras deployed through 2018, and approximately 22,000 by the end of 2019. The NYPD body-worn camera program is the culmination of exhaustive research that began in 2014 with a best-practices visit to the Los Angeles Police Department and review of roughly 50 other law enforcement agencies’ programs. Since then, the NYPD has sought the input of more than 30 key stakeholders and advocates, including: NYC’s respective District Attorneys, New York City Council, Public Advocate, New York Civil Liberties Union, Civilian Complaint Review Board, Citizens Crime Commission, Police Executive Research Forum. The general public and members of the NYPD also answered 30,000 questionnaires about BWC, collectively. Feedback gained from this outreach is reflected in multiple aspects of the updated procedure guiding the BWC program, including: Location on the officer’s uniform where body-worn cameras should be worn Circumstances in which officers to give notice to individuals being recorded Retention period for untagged footage being (1) year Creation of a dedicated email address for FOIL requests related to BWC footage The NYPD has developed a policy that requires police officers to engage their BWC during the following circumstances: All uses of force All arrests and summonses All interactions with people suspected of criminality All searches of persons and property Any officer response to a crime in progress All interactions with emotionally disturbed people “The NYPD has worked incredibly hard to build meaningful relationships between New York City’s communities and the officers who protect them,” said Police Commissioner James P. O’Neill. “Not only will body-worn cameras enhance transparency and accountability, they will improve the trust that continues to grow between New Yorkers and the police.” “The NYPD’s innovative neighborhood policing strategy has strengthened the relationship between police and communities. And as trust has grown, crime has declined,” said Mayor de Blasio. “Today is a historic day, as we deploy the first full tour of New York City police officers ever to formally wear body worn cameras. These cameras will guide a new day of policing in New York City that will further bolster the atmosphere of transparency and accountability that has grown in recent years, helping us continue to keep New York City the safest big city in the country.” (YWN Headquarters – NYC)

  • (8)Driver Questioned By Israel Police After Forgetting 4-Year-Old In Vehicle

    A driver who transports small children to daycare was questioned by Tel Aviv police on Wednesday, 30 Nissan, after forgetting a 4-year-old onboard. The driver told police “Certainly I forgot him because he fell asleep”. The child’s mother, who lives in a community in the Gezer Council, is accustomed to receiving a notification from the kindergarten teacher regarding her son being picked up for the trip back home. She received such an alert last Friday, which happened to be accompanied by sharav heat-wave conditions. About 50 minutes after being notified her son is heading home, the mom phoned her mom to tell her that her son has yet to arrive. She told Channel 2 News “I was nervous and immediately phoned the driver to ask where he is”. According to mom, the driver said, “I dropped him off at home”, but this was not the case. The driver is quoted then saying, “Most likely I forgot him because he fell asleep”. A few minutes later the driver called back to tell mom “your son is with me”, with her adding he apologized. Mom adds her son was brought back home sweaty and somewhat incoherent. The mother later told authorities her son explained “The driver saved me because he opened the door”, after which she phoned the persons responsible for the transportation in the Gezer Council to inquire as to the details of the driver to file an official complaint with police. Mom adds a police patrol arrived at her home and she gave the details in her report. She learned the driver however beat her to it, filing a report before her, changing his story. He told police the mother’s brother-in-law assaulted him. the brother-in-law was summoned for questioning by police and needless to say he and the mom are quite angry, explaining to the press “this story could have ended in a cemetery and this driver is certainly not qualified to continue in his position”. A manager of the bus company told Channel 2 News that they do everything possible to prevent such situations. The driver in question was briefed as are all drivers, instructed to conduct a sweep of the bus before parking. He told police he did not forget the child but was assaulted by a family member and required treatment in a hospital. He filed a complaint against the family member. It is further reported the driver was released to house arrest. The investigation continues. (YWN – Israel Desk, Jerusalem)

  • (10)Southwest Airlines To End Practice Of Overbooking Flights

    Southwest Airlines plans to stop overbooking flights — an industry practice implicated in an ugly incident on a United Airlines flight that has damaged United’s reputation with the flying public. Last year Southwest bumped 15,000 passengers off flights, more than any other U.S. airline. Carriers say they sometimes sell more tickets than there are seats because often a few passengers don’t show up. The practice of overbooking flights has come under intense scrutiny since April 9, when a passenger was dragged off an overbooked United Express plane after refusing to give up his seat for a crew member. Southwest CEO Gary Kelly said Thursday that the airline had been thinking about ending overbooking for “a long time” because of fewer and fewer no-shows. But the issue gained more urgency after the United incident, he said. Beth Harbin, a Southwest spokeswoman, said Thursday that with better forecasting tools and a new reservations system coming online next month the airline will no longer have a need to overbook flights. Politicians in Washington and elsewhere have called for a ban on overselling flights. Some critics have said airlines should leave a few seats empty if they think they will be needed by crew members. JetBlue is currently the only major U.S. airline with a stated policy that bans overbooking. United said Thursday that it plans to reduce overbooking but not eliminate it entirely. Dallas-based Southwest did not put a time frame on the policy change. And Kelly noted that Southwest may still need to bump people if, for instance, the airline substitutes a smaller plane for the one originally scheduled, which happens occasionally. Kelly was asked on an earnings conference call if the move could impact Southwest’s results. He said ending overbooking would have a minor impact on revenue but gave no figures. Chief Financial Officer Tammy Romo said doing away with overbooking would reduce costs — airlines compensate passengers for giving up their seats — which would offset some of the revenue hit. (AP)
