Israeli assaults Arab bus driver in Negev

July 5, 2014 10:49 P.M. (Updated: July 6, 2014 11:16 P.M.)
BEERSHEBA (Ma'an) -- An Arab bus driver was assaulted with rocks in the Negev by a 27-year-old Israeli on Saturday afternoon, a Ma'an reporter said.

The Israeli man was driving his car in the city when he saw an Arab bus driver standing by his bus waiting for passengers. He stopped his car and started throwing rocks at him. The bus driver approached him telling him to stop when the Israeli started pointing at him and shouting “Arab! Arab!.” Then the bus driver went inside his bus and called the police who told him to stay inside and shut its doors.

An Israeli police vehicle arrived and pursued the suspect, who was identified by the bus driver’s description.

The suspect was caught and taken to a police station for investigations.

Moshe Igy, chief of the Beersheba police, said that local authorities “will not allow any violence and will deal with it strictly and relentlessly.”
