Israeli Ethiopian Protests ‘Reveal Open Wound’, President Says
Israel’s president has said Ethiopian Israelis’ protests against alleged discrimination “revealed an open and raw wound” at the heart of Israeli society”.
Reuven Rivlin said Israel must address the community’s grievances, which had been ignored.
It comes after police and protesters clashed in Tel Aviv on Sunday night.
Israel’s PM meanwhile has met the Ethiopian Israeli soldier, whose beating by police fuelled tensions.
