News 13 personnel, police and investigative reporter Yossi Eli and photographer Shi Poni, were attacked last night (Sunday) by police while covering the demonstration against the legal revolution on Gaza Street in Jerusalem, near Prime Minister Netanyahu's home.

Watch footage from the incident (above).

"I want to believe that it was a lack of understanding, but in general the police were a little hot-headed," says Yossi Eli to Walla!

Tarbut, "Our photographer, Shay Poni, approached the area where the protesters were standing, and saw that the Makhtazeit was starting to work.

Suddenly a policeman came, started pushing him.

Shay almost fell and apparently the tripod accidentally collided with the policeman, and then he really freaked out, saying: 'You, you, I'll stop you, you attack policemen, I'll punch you', and started really pushing him.

He almost pinned him to the floor and choked him.'

I came to separate, and said 'Leave him, what are you doing?'

Then two of his friends joined in, and started attacking both of us.

One of them knocked me to the floor.

Only with the intervention of the senior officers, who realized that there was something problematic here, did they leave Shay and me."

"During this struggle, Shai's camera was broken, and his tripod was broken. Nir Hasson, a reporter for the Haaretz newspaper, also arrived there. He tried to help me, so that I wouldn't fall, and because he tried to help me by force, they kicked him out, and that's how the incident ended. You can see in the video The severe violence. Until now, my ribs hurt that you don't understand. What happened there is not normal. There was a loss of control."

The police response has not yet been received.
