MK Dov Khenin is taking part in a demonstration in Jaffa protesting police brutality against minorities — specifically the death of Mahdi al-Sa'adi.

He was unarmed and didn't pose a threat when he was shot dead by police.

"The police violence against civilians crosses red lines, especially when it comes to Arabs, Ethiopian immigrants and the periphery. We are demonstrating so that there will be a police force here that protects the civilians and does not harm them," Khenin said.
