Earlier this week, we reported on the French Diplomat who punched an IDF soldier in the face during an activity to support Bedouin squatters.

Now, speaking to the Israel Hayom paper, an official has confirmed that she will be deported, adding that it was "an isolated incident that does not characterize relations between Israel and France."

Marion Fesneau-Castaing, who threw the punch, is France’s cultural attache to the consulate in Jerusalem. She punched the soldier in the face when they came to stop activists who were giving tents and other goods to an illegal bedouin encampment in the Jordan Valley. EU officials first condemned Israel over the event, with reports by anti-Israel activists claiming the Israeli forces had used violence against a convoy delivering humanitarian aid, and had first assaulted the diplomat.

Once a video of the incident emerged, a very different story could be seen. It was Castaing punching a soldier in the face, with restraint being shown by IDF personnel amidst provocation by Arab and European activists. Israel’s Foreign Ministry then condemned the "European diplomats’ violation of the law, their disregard to a ruling of the Israeli court and their unnecessary provocation under the alleged pretext of humanitarian aid."

Fesneau-Castaing is to be deported by the end of the year.
