Report: Mob attacks Palestinian woman in Jerusalem

Feb. 26, 2013 8:21 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 28, 2013 1:40 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) – A group of Jewish women attacked a Palestinian woman Monday while she was waiting at a light rail station in Jerusalem and beat her severely, Israeli media reported.

Hebrew-language Israeli daily Maariv reported that an ultra-Orthodox Jewish woman passed by the Palestinian woman and punched her all of a sudden. Other women, friends of the assailant, then joined her and together they started to beat the woman forcefully.

The victim tried to defend herself, but the number of attackers was big enough to subdue he and continue to beat her.

Maariv said an eyewitness managed to document the assault in photos.

“There were more than 100 Orthodox Jews including Yeshiva students who watched an Arab woman being beaten. She was escorted by an elderly man before a heated argument erupted and people shouted. I couldn’t understand the motive behind that, and all of a sudden they all attacked the Arab woman beating her severely,” said the witness.
