Dozens Rally Opposite Russian Embassy Party

Dozens of activists rallied Tuesday night outside the Tel Aviv Hilton during a Russian Embassy event. The activists waved signs calling ‘celebrate and murder’ against Russian support of the Assad regime.

Deputy Negev and Galilee Development Minister Ayoob Kara was invited to the event, but he participated in the rally instead.

Kara called for Putin to abandon pursuit of narrow interests. “The greatest interests are freedom and democracy.”
