Reports show that a man was taken into custody by the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department after the death of a pro-Israel demonstrator who was 69 years old.
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office reports that 50-year-old Loay Abdelfattah Alnaji was taken into custody on Thursday morning. His bail has been set at $1 million. The District Attorney filed charges against him for violence resulting in severe bodily harm and involuntary manslaughter.
International media outlets reported that Kessler and a pro-Hamas demonstrator got into a verbal brawl in Ventura County. Kessler was knocked unconscious and bleeding heavily when a protester reportedly smashed a megaphone against his skull.
It was reported that Alnaji was suspected of Kessler’s killing and that police had searched his residence. Ventura police claimed they had a suspect yet had not named him nor made an arrest.
Alnaji taught in the United Arab Emirates before moving to America in the 1990s. The Palestinian terrorists who are attempting to destroy Israel have had the open backing and admiration of Alnaji. A report shows he gushed over them in a series of Arabic social media posts.
Local detailed reports showed that the Jewish pro-Israel activist Paul Kessler was fatally wounded earlier this month at a demonstration in Thousand Oaks, California when he was attacked by a pro-Hamas demonstrator.
Around 3:20 p.m. on November 5, authorities reported a battery near the crossroads of Thousand Oaks Boulevard and Westlake Boulevard, where rallies in support of both Israel and Palestine were taking place.
A pro-Palestinian demonstrator struck the head of Kessler with a megaphone, the Jewish Federation of Los Angeles said. After Kessler was injured, he was rushed to the hospital, but he passed away the next day.
The Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office categorized his death as a murder.
