Ben Gvir, who is the leader of the National Religious Party, told the press his intention to set up his office in that neighborhood, populated entirely by Palestinians, who consider his presence a provocation.

On Sunday, Ben-Gvir and his supporters established a temporary office, consisting of several tables under an awning, a situation that unleashed angry protests from Palestinians, until he was arrested by the police.

Several television stations broadcast footage of Sunday evening’s clashes between the police and supporters of the lawmaker during the eviction.

The scenes showed left-wing Israeli lawmakers Ofer Cassif and Ahmad Tibi while they clashed with right-wing radical Israelis.

What happened in that neighborhood and the rise of settlers’ violence reached unprecedented levels, he stressed.
