Scuffles break out between police, protesters; demonstrators say officer choked man
Demonstrators in Tel Aviv say that a police officer choked a protester during a scuffle at a protest against the judicial overhaul.
It is unclear what preceded the incident.
Actress Alona Sa’ar, who witnessed the incident, tells the Kan public broadcaster that she was hit during the incident.
“He really choked him,” says Sa’ar, the daughter of National Unity MK Gideon Sa’ar, a former justice minister.
“I don’t want to live in a dictatorship. I don’t want to live in fucking Iran,” she says.
