In Israel, the most widely used system is the perimeter security unit, also known as the Kishon, a four-man group that consists of a guard and three armed security personnel.
According to the Israeli police, there are more than 8,000 of them across the country.
The Kishons are stationed along the borders of Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories, and are used to detect intruders.
According, the Kishesons are responsible for patrolling and preventing “any unauthorized activity.”
The unit also has the ability to spot, identify, and destroy vehicles and weapons and also has a number of surveillance cameras.
The Israeli government has made it clear that the KISHON unit should only be used as a last resort to detect the presence of an intruder, and that it is not capable of detecting large numbers of people.
However, the Israeli army has not been shy about giving its blessing to a number other security measures, including “the Kishonta, which is a series of cameras placed along a main road that allow the soldiers to track a car as it passes.
The use of the KIS-1 surveillance system in Israel has sparked concern from the Israeli civil rights organization B’Tselem. “
It can be used for road closures, when necessary, and to identify potential suspects,” a police spokesperson told Al Jazeera.
The use of the KIS-1 surveillance system in Israel has sparked concern from the Israeli civil rights organization B’Tselem.
According the organization, “the system is being used to track people on the basis of their DNA and cannot be used to identify or detain people.”
The Israeli army, however, claims that the use of KIS is not a form of surveillance.
In a statement to Al Jazeera, the IDF spokesperson said that the unit was installed for security reasons and it is a means of stopping unauthorized entry into a border area.
“The Kishishon was put in place to protect the country’s borders, and as a means to protect Israel from any threats to the state and to its citizens, it is necessary that it be used,” the spokesperson added.
