Far-right activist Baruch Marzel hurled himself at the vehicle carrying Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon during the latter’s visit to the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron on Tuesday.
Marzel was angered by the fact that authorities forced him to leave the premises during the defense minister’s stay. Marzel said that he was in the middle of a Torah lesson with a number of youngsters when he was told to vacate the premises.
A phalanx of bodyguards arrested Marzel and took him into custody for questioning. While the far-rightist was being whisked away, he yelled toward Ya’alon: "Enemy of the settlement movement…strong against Jews but weak against Arabs."
