שוטרים תועדו מכים מפגינים בצורה קשה זושא לוסטיג

The Honenu legal aid organization on Saturday night received reports of at least 10 people who were detained during a demonstration over the death of Ahuvya Sandak, which took place outside the national police headquarters in Jerusalem.

The protesters reported that police used severe violence against them.

Footage from the scene showed a Border Police officer kicking one of the protesters, and another Border Police officer punching him in the back. An attorney on behalf of the Honenu organization assisted the detainees at the police station.

The Israel Police said, "Tonight, a riot broke out near the national Headquarters in Jerusalem by dozens of young people. During the disturbance, there was an intermittent blockage of the main traffic lane and a number of rioters confronted the police, insulted and cursed them."

"After disobeying the dispersal order given by a local police officer, the police acted to repel the disturbances and evacuate the road, and seven arrests were made of people who violated public order. Meanwhile, the police located in the possession of two of the suspects assault weapons - folding knives and a bat. We will continue to allow protests within the boundaries of the law, but we will not allow a breach of public order, a violent riot and a risk to road users in violation of the law."

עימותים במחאת סנדק בירושלים דוברות המשטרה

Protesters have demonstrated several times in Jerusalem in recent weeks against the conduct of the police in the case of Sandak, who was killed during a police chase in the Binyamin region more than a year ago.

In one protest, dozens of young people and adults protested in Zion Square in Jerusalem. The protesters intermittently blocked the path of the Jerusalem Light Rail. Police officers made arrests and kept the demonstrators off the tracks.

During a demonstration a week earlier, 21 people were arrested at the Chords Bridge in Jerusalem.
