Speaking to Channel 12 yesterday evening, Elinor Hess recounted being injured during clashes at a pro-Israel protest in Los Angeles.

“My sister’s flag fell on the floor… I was going in to try and get it, and when I was down getting her flag I was shoved down to the ground and I fell back hitting my head,” she said.

“And when I was down I was kicked a few times and my hair was pulled by feet, dragged across the ground, and then my head started bleeding. I lost consciousness and it was just super traumatic.”

Elinor said she’d filed a police complaint over the incident.

Her mother Ruth added that she was “in shock” as it happened, and “trying to find someone to help my girl.

“I just saw her head hit the ground. It was one of the most frightening things I’ve ever seen.”
