Public defender Yair Nadashi, who represented the policeman, told Ynet that security camera footage taken from the gas station clearly shows it was the civilian who assaulted his client, who was "merely responding to the aggression."


The lawyer said the indictment would not have been filed in the first place had the internal affairs unit examined the evidence more thoroughly.


Judge Orit Kantor was convinced that the officer did not attack the civilian and cleared him of all charges.
