Joint List MK Ofer Cassif will be questioned Sunday by police’s Lahav 433 special crimes unit over a filmed incident several months ago in which he was seen assaulting a police officer.

Earlier this week, police obtained permission from the attorney general to investigate the incident despite Cassif enjoying parliamentary immunity in most instances as a member of Knesset.

In May, Cassif was caught on camera striking a police officer on the head after security forces blocked his vehicle from reaching a protest in the West Bank.
