Thousands of Israelis apply for weapons permits

Thousands of Israelis apply for weapons permits

Tel Aviv - Thousands of Israelis have applied for permits to carry guns, following an unprecedented wave of Palestinian knife attacks.

Israel's internal security ministry says it has been inundated with requests, including by combatants who have asked to be allowed to carry their weapons off duty, guards, police volunteers and regular civilians, Israel Army Radio reported on Monday.

The ministry's telephone service has collapsed, with citizens saying they are unable to reach anyone.

Citizens say they are also unable to schedule an appointment for an interview, a requirement before a permit is given, via the Internet.

The ministry said it was aware of the problem, it was doing its best to process requests and that it had already doubled the number of employees in the office.
