Otzma Yehudit and Union of Right-Wing Parties activists blocked the passage of trucks to Gaza through the Kerem Shalom crossing on Monday.
During the blockage, one of the truck drivers attempted to attack the activists with a knife. The driver on the other hand claims that the activists in response beat him with clubs.
The Israeli police received a call of a protest causing a dispute at the Kerem Shalom crossing.
Police forces arrived at the scene and detained three suspects.
"The opening of the Kerem Shalom crossing is a disgrace to the Israeli government, and in the next Knesset we will demand that there if citizens of the Gaza border communities will not have a normal life, there will be no normal life in Gaza either," Otzma Yehudit candidate Itamar Ben-Gvir spoke at the scene.
