Left-wing masked terrorists attack dozens marching in support of Sgt Elor Azaria
Activists from Otzma Yehudit party were attacked on Wednesday evening during a protest march in Tel Aviv in support of IDF soldier Sgt. Elor Azaria, who is on trial for killing a terrorist in Hevron.
During the march the youth and activists were attacked by five masked individuals who beat the participants and sprayed them with tear gas.
The terrorists, who identified themselves as “Antifa,” the Antifaschistische Aktion, a militant extremist extra-parliamentary network in Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark and other countries, whose stated goal is to “smash fascism in all its forms,” attacked the rally of twelfth-graders and a few adults who were marching on behalf of Sgt. Elor Azaria.
Several youths and former MK Michael Ben-Ari, who participated in the march, were injured and required medical treatment. They were taken to the Ichilov Hospital.
In response, Otzma Yehudit said that “the assault this evening of young nationalists led by Dr. Ben-Ari by leftist thugs crossed a red line and is very serious.”
“If it were the opposite case, all those defenders of the rule of law would have expressed their shock. We demand that the police prosecute the rioters. We will not stop to work for the release of the soldier and bullying will not win,” the statement said.
