Joint List MK hits officer after being stopped from reaching West Bank protest

22 2 13

A Knesset member from the Arab-majority Joint List party hit a police officer on Friday after security forces blocked his vehicle from reaching a protest in the West Bank.

Joint List MK Ofer Cassif hit the officer lightly on the head during a heated verbal exchange after police and Border Police stopped his car in the South Hebron hills.

In a video, a police officer attempts to halt Cassif’s vehicle. The car bumps into the officer, who approaches Cassif and shouts at him to move his vehicle away.

“Move your car. You’re not getting in,” the officer shouts.

“I didn’t touch you,” Cassif yells back.

Cassif then strikes the officer, and accuses him of an attack.

“You hit me in the face,” Cassif shouts.

“Who even are you? Get out of here,” he says in the footage.
