Protesters seeking justice for boy killed in hit-and-run block Netanya junction

Protesters in Netanya demonstrating for justice for a 4-year-old boy killed in a hit-and-run have blocked a major intersection in Netanya, leading to clashes with police, the Ynet news site reports.

Protesters, led by members of the Ethiopian community, have accused authorities of racism and leniency toward the driver who hit Rafael Adana in May. Previous demonstrations have devolved into violent melees with cops.

Demonstrators stand in the middle of an intersection next to Hasharon Mall, holding signs demanding justice and pleading that “the blood of our kids is not worthless.”

“It’s unfortunate that we live in a messed up world where we need to demonstrate to receive justice,” says Amir Tega, a Netanya city council member taking part in the protest.
