The statement added that the Chief Military Advocate General, Brigadier General Danny Efroni, has ordered that the Military Police investigate the incident as well.

There was no evidence in the video that the anarchist was injured.

These jack @sses dont believe in Anarchy for a moment, theyre simply opportunist playing on our civility.
