Report: Jewish youths attack Arab man in Jerusalem


Jewish youths reportedly assaulted an Arab man in Jerusalem in front of his Jewish friends.

Israeli police said the attack happened Wednesday night in the city's Katamon neighborhood, The Jerusalem Post reported. The Arab, who is in his 20s, was walking with two Jewish friends when a group of Jewish teenagers attacked him, the report said.

The incident came less than a month after a group of Jews beat a 17-year-old Arab and left him in critical condition in the capital in an assauly Israeli police described as a lynching. Police arrested five in that attack, including a 13-year-old. Earlier in August, Jewish assailants firebombed a Palestinian taxi near Gush Etzion, wounding six people, including two children.

The violence by Jews against Arabs prompted sharp condemnation and some measure of soul searching across Israel.
