A lawsuit has been filed against the Biden Secret Service agent accused of assaulting an Israeli woman in Jerusalem in July as the agent prepared for President Biden’s visit to Israel.
Tamar Ben-Haim, 30, claims that the man “began punching and slapping her” and was armed, which made her feel as though “these were her last moments on Earth.”
Ben Haim yelled for help, but no one responded until a man with the agent dragged him off Tamar, court documents claim.
“Held Tamar tightly, beat her on her chest, repeatedly, slapped her, forcing her earring and earphone to fall to the ground,” the man is said to have done.
After being attacked on July 12 in an alleyway at around one in the morning, Ben Haim filed a civil lawsuit in federal court in Washington, DC.
The victim claims she reported the assault to the police, who detained her assailant before releasing him.
Ben Haim believes that the encounter traumatized her and left her with sleep problems, anxiety, sadness, exhaustion, migraines, and breathing problems.
She also visits a psychologist and a psychiatrist to deal with the trauma.
Ben Haim claims that the Secret Service rejected her request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) for the man’s identification, which has not been made public.
She is currently appealing.
Ben Haim said to Fox News in an interview that a “big man” repeatedly punched her “over and over” like a “punching bag.”
She recalled at the moment, “I was in complete astonishment. I couldn’t even attempt to defend myself since he was so powerful. I told myself, “You won’t make it through this.” You have reached the end of your life.
