The Budapest Police Headquarters (BRFK) has banned a rally announced in connection with the armed conflict between the Hamas terrorist organization and Israel, the police said on their website on Wednesday, adding that there was reason to fear that the event would lead to violence.
The BRFK wrote on police.hu that the rally had been announced by a private citizen for November 22 in the second district of Budapest.
They explained that similar rallies in many cities in Europe and around the world have recently ended in violence, so there is reason to fear that this could endanger public order, public safety, and the physical safety of those present in Hungary, and therefore the Budapest Police Headquarters has banned the rally under the law on the right of assembly.

The BRFK pointed out that participation in the prohibited assembly will be subject to sanctions. Since the outbreak of the armed conflict between Israel and Hamas, the Budapest police already banned several similar rallies in October.
