Police arrested a 28-year-old African migrant on Sunday night after he attacked MK Elazar Stern (The Movement) during the lawmaker's visit to the central bus station area in south Tel Aviv.

Stern was not hurt during the attack, though he was struck in the back of the head and his kippa was knocked on the ground.

The man was arrested immediately by officers who were patrolling Stern's tour, which he took part in on the invite of residents of south Tel Aviv.

Almost two weeks ago, new Interior Minister Gideon Sa'ar (Likud) went on a similar tour of the same neighborhood. No violent incidents were reported, though shouting matches did break out between Israeli and foreign residents of south Tel Aviv.
