Visiting the site of violent riots in south Tel Aviv, National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir says all involved in Saturday’s unrest “will be dealt with.”
But residents reportedly tell Ben Gvir to deal with himself first, booing the minister and accusing him of failing to fulfill his campaign promises to bring order to Israel’s streets.
“Now you remember to come here? Racist,” says one person protesting Ben Gvir, who is met with boos and chants of “shame” and “failure,” the Ynet news site reports.

The minister snaps back at at least one person, “How much are you being paid? You seem to have a leftist agenda.”
The minister says he gives full backing to any cop who opened fire “in self-defense” during Saturday’s chaos.
