Israelis attack 2 Palestinians in Jerusalem area

July 1, 2014 3:44 P.M. (Updated: July 4, 2014 10:02 A.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israelis assaulted two Palestinians in west Jerusalem on Tuesday in suspected racist attacks following the announcement that the bodies of three missing Israeli teens were found a day earlier, family said.

Khalid Atiyeh, 24, was attacked by dozens of Israelis while working in a restaurant in the Pisgat Zeev settlement, his father told Ma'an.

The attackers broke into the restaurant chanting "Death to Arabs!" before assaulting Atiyeh with clubs and stones. Israeli forces intervened and forced the assailants back, but Atiyeh was followed by a group of Israelis while reporting to a nearby police station.

A police spokesman told Ma'an he was not familiar with the incident.

Meanwhile, a 17-year-old Israeli attacked a Palestinian taxi driver with pepper spray late Monday, Israeli police spokeswoman Luba al-Samri said.

The youth was detained following the incident.

Racist anti-Palestinian graffiti was also found near the city of Beit Shemesh, Wafa reported.
