Deputy Religious Services Minister Eli Ben-Dahan was verbally attacked by mourners while paying his respect to Rabbi Ovadia Yosef's family.

"Your kippa is fake, Rabbi Ovadia cried because of you for half a year, don't mention his name," mourners called out at Ben-Dahan, who is an MK in the national-religious party Bayit Yehudi.

Ben-Dahan's aides and other mourners had to physically stop mourners from reaching the deputy minister.
