Cop who fired in the air in Bnei Brak says he was ‘stabbed’ with blunt object

The police officer who shot in the air after being shoved by ultra-Orthodox rioters in Bnei Brak felt a “stab” in the back with a blunt object and therefore fired shots in the air to drive them back, police say in a statement.

The statement says a cop suffered head injuries and is receiving medical care.

“We will work to locate and fully bring the lawbreakers to justice,” police say.
