Israeli politicians are being prosecuted in the US for allegedly inciting violence during a demonstration last year that turned violent, sparking months of protests and calls for an investigation by the US Justice Department.
The Justice Department has filed a complaint against Yair Lapid and MK Moshe Kahlon for allegedly instigating violence and inciting violence against protesters at the annual demonstration in Washington DC on November 11, 2016.
Lapid and Kahlon were arrested for their roles in the violent protest, which saw police use tear gas and water cannons against hundreds of demonstrators.
Kahlon, who is the head of the centrist Yesh Atid party, was later sentenced to two years in prison and ordered to pay $4,000 in fines.
Lambert, who was elected to parliament in May, has not been charged with any crimes.
He has denied any involvement in the protests.
Laws restricting protests in Israel have been in place since January, after the government passed a law banning protests in the capital.
Protesters have also staged marches against the new US-sponsored peace deal with the Palestinians.
