The demonstrators on bridges and intersections across the country against the return of opposition leader and former Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to power were attacked this evening (Saturday) during their protest, at the Ramat Hadar Hod Hasharon Bridge on Route 4 and the Anchor Junction.
Because of their support for the Change Bloc: Demonstrators against Netanyahu were attacked with stones in Israel
At the first point in Hod Hasharon, it was reported that a group of ATV riders stopped near the demonstration on the bridge, its members went berserk, beat the demonstrators with helmets and fists, and knocked demonstrators to the floor. Police were called to the scene.
After that, another attack on protesters was reported at the Anchor intersection, when a young man in a private car that stopped next to a protester cursed her, got out of the vehicle, spat on her, and began tearing down signs and burning them.
On behalf of the Bridge People, it was stated: “This is the fourth violent attack in two weeks. When Netanyahu’s poison machine incites and normalizes the most extreme, what wonder the violence is rampant. Violence will not deter us. We are returning en masse to the bridges and intersections to make sure he does not return.”
The chairman of the Meretz party, Zehava Galon, published: “A criminal attack by bibists tonight as well. This is what the result of the incitement of Netanyahu, Ben Gabir and Smotritz looks like. You won’t hear them defending because that’s what they want – us scared and afraid of them. I have news for you – I’m back, we’re back, we won’t give in to your violence.”
The chairman of Free Democratic Israel, former minister Eli Avidar, responded to the events: “Third week in a row. The incitement of the conservative-Messianic bloc leads to uncontrollable violence by incited thugs. Even today they attacked protesters at the Ramat Hadar bridge in Hod Hasharon. Unforgivable. The lack of hand and the ignoring of the police will not stop the violence. On the contrary.”
Member of Knesset Mossi Raz (‘March’) wrote: “Tonight more demonstrators were attacked – just because they dared to come out against corruption and violence. On 1.11 everyone goes out to vote, we will not allow bibism and fascism to return.”
Knesset member Emily Moati (‘Labor’) tweeted in response on her Twitter account: “No violent rascal will scare us or make us stop fighting for the house. We must remember: the elections are not about the type of government but about the type of regime. I expect the police to act immediately Against the lawbreakers, the execution contractors of the incitement against the change camp, which is doing the most worthy civil act – going out to demonstrate in favor of democracy.”
