The judiciary in Chile reported Friday that a total of 26,126 Chileans have been arrested since October 18, when demonstrations and protests began in rejection of the Neoliberal policies imposed on the South American nation for 30 years. Out of this number – cited local media – a total of 8,664 people are from the metropolitan region of Santiago, a Chilean province where strong and massive mobilizations were registered in rejection of the measures, intensified during the government of Sebastián Piñera.

BENJAMIN ZINEVICH—Today, the armed forces of both Chile and Israel make no attempts to hide their alliances, citing on the Chilean Embassy to Israel’s website the aims of “increasing the bonds with…Israel, in order to make knowledge, training and experiences exchange possible.” Chile and Israel signed an agreement in 2018 which spoke of encouraging further “cooperation in military education, training and doctrine” during Israeli General Yaacov Barak’s visit to Chile that year.
