Groom in ‘hate video’ arrested

The groom whose wedding was made famous by a clip showing dozens of far-right guests celebrating the deadly Duma attack has been arrested.

Yakir Ashbal had previously said he was unaware of the revelers’ behavior at the event.

Three other wedding-goers have also been arrested.

Last week, Ashbal told Channel 10: “I didn’t even see it. At my wedding I was in the clouds, not on the ground at all.”

He called the footage “shocking,” but insisted that “there were about 600 people at my wedding, and this wasn’t something I agreed to. There were a million people. I don’t control what happens at my wedding. I’m just the groom; I didn’t even pay for the photographer or the singer.”
