Man arrested for assault at hostage rally, telling another he wishes his ‘daughter will die’

Police say they arrested a 42-year-old Petah Tikvah resident who assaulted people at a rally for hostages in Tel Aviv.

Reports say the man, apparently a right-wing activist, began taunting people at the rally, calling them “traitors” and telling one father “I hope your daughter dies.”

He was confronted by protesters and began to scuffle with them.

The IDF says it has identified at least 199 people taken hostage by Hamas in Gaza and informed their families.
