Israeli man physically assaults Palestinian girl in Jerusalem

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli man on Sunday assaulted a Palestinian girl in the al-Sharaf neighborhood of the Old City of Jerusalem, her father said.

He said his daughter, 12-year-old Marah Munther Jalajel, was beaten by an Israeli "settler" on her way to school.

She was walking with her cousin through al-Sharaf when the man attacked Marah, her father said.

He said the man "struck her in the back, causing her to fall down, then proceeded to hit her on the back, stomach, and head." Her cousin "managed to escape and call for help, and a young man came to the area to help Marah."

"The perpetrator fled."

Marah suffered "several bruises," her father said, adding that he had notified the police.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said he was unfamiliar with the incident.
