Israeli extremists assault Palestinian lawyer

July 15, 2014 5:46 P.M. (Updated: July 16, 2014 6:37 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Three extremist Israelis assaulted a Palestinian lawyer and a woman in Deir Yassin in west Jerusalem.

A Ma'an reporter said the three pepper-sprayed lawyer Sanaa Dweik and a woman that was with her when they were leaving a courthouse in western Jerusalem.

Lawyer Dweik told Ma'an that “when I finished my work at the courthouse in Deir Yassin on Monday I headed to my car with my client where we were surprised by two extremists who at first accused me of parking my car in their spot and then of hitting their car.”

“One of them opened the car door while verbally assaulting me and then slammed it hard and another one pepper sprayed me and my client.”

Dweik added that the extremists fled and pedestrians who were in the area did not try to catch them, call the police or an ambulance; two Arab young men were passing by and called authorities.

The lawyer highlighted that this was the second time she was assaulted; the first was during the Israeli offensive on Gaza in 2012 when seven extremists punctured the tires of her car and attempted to stab her with knives. She managed to lock her car and call the police who arrived and detained them.

Dweik added that the suspects appeared to be in their early to mid-20s.
