Rights campaigner Jafar Farah, an Arab Israeli who accused a police officer of beating him and breaking his knee after his arrest at a Gaza solidarity rally in Haifa last year, announces that he will be running in April’s Knesset elections.

Farah will run for a spot on the slate of Hadash, a socialist Jewish-Arab party that made up part of the Joint List in the Knesset.
