Settlers Assault, Beat Jerusalemite Palestinian

JERUSALEM, November 25, 2014 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers on Tuesday assaulted and beat up a Palestinian resident of Jerusalem, causing him injuries in the neck and the back, according to local sources.

Islam Mazen Ebeid, 25, was in West Jerusalem when six Israeli settlers approached him and severely beat him up, causing him bruises in his neck and back, his father said.

Ebeid was transferred to hospital for medical treatment.

Settlers have repeatedly assaulted Palestinians and their property across Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank. Such assaults are ignored by Israeli forces, who frequently protect settlers or stand by watching.
