Woman who threw vegetable at PM: I was aiming at my relative, not Netanyahu

The woman who was briefly detained after throwing a vegetable at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during his tour of Tel Aviv’s Hatikva Market yesterday says she had been trying to get the vegetable to her relative on the other side of the market and was not aiming at the premier.

“We all support Bibi and I did not mean to hurt him, I’m sorry for everything that happened,” the woman says.

Moreover, she clarifies that it was not a tomato that she threw, as originally reported, but rather a pepper.
