Protesters who allege they were the victims of police brutality during clashes in central Tel Aviv early Sunday can "submit complaints" to the Justice Ministry's Police Investigations Department, a law enforcement source said.

The comment came after The Jerusalem Post asked the source whether police acknowledged that there were instances of abuse during the confrontation, such as video footage showing a policeman shaking and choking a female protester,  before arresting her.

"Such investigations [into allegations of police brutality] are not under our authority," the source said. "Complaints can be filed to the PID and the evidence will be examined," the police source added.
