Palestinian boy hospitalized after Jerusalem attack

Dec. 25, 2012 3:35 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 28, 2012 2:43 P.M.)
TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Two Israelis attacked and injured a 15-year-old Palestinian boy in east Jerusalem late Monday, a police spokesman said Tuesday.

Micky Rosenfeld told Ma'an that the attackers, believed to be two ultra-Orthodox Jewish residents, assaulted the boy from behind causing moderate head injuries.

Rosenfeld said the boy was being treated at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem.

Israel's Ynet news site quoted the boy's mother as saying the attack was unprovoked.

"My son said he and his friends were hanging out near the train station when two religious-looking guys showed up. One of them grabbed him and knocked him down and hit him repeatedly over the head," the boy's mother was quoted as saying.

"People keep talking about peace, but what is this 'peace'? What do they want? What did my son do to them?"

The incident was the latest in a series of attacks on youths in east Jerusalem, which Israel occupied in 1967 and later annexed in a move never recognized abroad.
