Labor leader Merav Michaeli is met with jeers and heckling during a pre-election tour of the Hatikva Market in Tel Aviv.
Supporters of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu call Michaeli a “lesbian” and “garbage” while chanting in support of the Likud leader.
Michaeli’s spokesperson was spat on by a man at the market. He also spat on the ground near Michaeli, while branding her a “slut.” Passersby on electric bikes also drove in the direction of her staff.
The Labor party condemns the incident and says they are weighing a police complaint. Michaeli urges Netanyahu to denounce the incident.
