An IDF soldier was attacked by two Arab youths on Polansky street in
Jerusalem´s Shmuel HaNavi neighborhood.
The soldier was lightly hurt. He was taken to Shaarei Tzedek Hospital
where he received treatment.
Police began combing the area, in a search for the perpetrators.
The attack took place hours after a judge released the suspects in a
similar attack that took place in Haifa. In that attack, two off-duty
soldiers were moderately injured when a gang of Arabs began throwing
bricks and other objects at them, and then beat them with metal
sticks and stones, while shouting anti-Jewish curses and slogans at
them. The Arabs, using a knife, also carved the name “Fatah” on the
head of one of the soldiers.
