Sunday, July 24, 2022, 15:05 Over a year ago, Mor Janashvilli was brutally attacked by a rioting Arab mob in Acco. Several of the terrorists have been apprehended – see here and here for more details – and another one was arrested recently. Soon, a plaintiff's affidavit will be filed against him at the Haifa District Court. Janashvilli will be present at the hearing accompanied by Honenu Attorney Chayim Bleicher.
Honenu Attorney Chayim Bleicher, who is representing Janashvilli, thanked the authorities working to bring the attackers to justice: "The operations to apprehend the terrorists who carried out the brutal attack have continued over a year since the attack, indicating the determination of the office of the State Attorney and the police in the face of terror. This sends a clear message that every perpetrator of serious acts against Israeli citizens will be pursued until they pay a high price for their actions.
"We expect to see the courts joining the welcome efforts of the office of the State Attorney, imposing stiff penalties on terrorists, thus creating a deterrence that will prevent incidents such as this from repeating," concluded Bleicher.
During the Arab rioting at the time of Operation Guardian of the Walls (May 2021), Janashvilli was attacked by dozens of Arab rioters who pelted his car with large rocks, heavy furniture, and anything else they could get their hands on. Janashvilli lost control of his car, drove it into a wall, and was forced to flee. The Arab mob beat him with metal and wooden bars, punched him, and kicked him until he collapsed on the ground in a semi-conscious state. He was saved at the last moment, apparently by Arabs who called the emergency services. He was evacuated by ambulance to the hospital, suffering from bruises on his entire body, broken bones, cuts on his face, partial paralysis in his left leg, headaches, and dizziness.
