Jerusalem: Three Attacks on Arabs by Jews in One Week

Three separate attacks by Jewish Israelis on Palestinians took place over the last week, according to a report in Haaretz, including serious assaults and damage to property.

Several Palestinians were injured on Sunday when they were attacked by a large group of Orthodox Jews near Damascus Gate in Jerusalem, one of a spate of such assaults on Arabs by Jews in recent days, said Haaretz.

Eyewitnesses and CCTV footage showed several dozen Orthodox men throwing chairs and tables from nearby restaurants and stones at Arab passersby and business owners before they were dispersed by the police. No arrests were made.

In addition, last week a Palestinian bus driver was assaulted in the Orthodox settlement of Betar Ilit on the outskirts of Jerusalem.
