Israeli newspaper Maariv published a video clip on Monday showing an attack by Israeli police on Bishop Anthasius of Ramallah's Egyptian Orthodox Church in Jerusalem during Easter celebrations last week.
In an interview with the newspaper, Anthasius said that Israeli police had attacked him in the street after he had tried to pass through an Israeli military checkpoint.
In the video, the 84-year-old bishop can be seen being attacked by policemen. "They treated me like a dog," the bishop told the Israeli newspaper.
Last week, Israeli police also attacked Egyptian diplomats in Jerusalem, prompting Egypt's foreign affairs ministry to summon Israeli Ambassador Yaacov Amitai to express its displeasure.
Israeli police, for their part, issued a statement asserting that the policemen who attacked the bishop had not been from the Jerusalem police but rather from other police stations.
Israeli police subsequently issued a formal apology to both Egypt and Bishop Anthasius for last week's incident.
