Israel National News reports:
Gay Pride parade stabber Yishai Shlissel has been admitted to a psychiatric ward in order to assess whether he is fit to stand trial, Channel 10 reported Monday. Later that day, Channel 10 reported that Shlissel had, in fact, experienced a psychotic episode in 2009 and undergone extensive treatment in a special facility, and was being forced to take medication since. It is unclear whether this was ever mentioned to investigators. Even before the parade, Shlissel was labelled by intelligence as a “danger to the event.” However, he was never summoned to report to police before or during the march and was never questioned before the fact regarding his intentions.
