The Tel Aviv District Court convicts Yaakov Cohen, 32, of assault during last May’s mobbing of Arab Israeli Saeed Mousa.

Cohen admitted to taking part in the attack on Mousa as part of a plea deal. He is the second person to be convicted in the case, and several others have been charged.

Cohen is alleged to have struck Mousa’s car and kicked him after he was pulled out of the vehicle by the crowd.

Cohen’s sentencing will take place at a later date.
