shlomo-ben-haimFive Jews were viciously attacked in an apparent anti-Semitic assault at a popular beach town near Sydney, Australia over the weekend.

Police said four men ages 66, 48, 39, and 27, along with a 62-year-old woman, were walking along the street in Bondi beach when eight young males shouted anti-Semitic comments at them and physically attacked them.

One of the victims was Jewish National Fund emissary Shlomo Ben-Chaim.

“They started yelling ‘dirty Jews’ at us and then they just assaulted us. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life,” Ben-Chaim told Israel Radio.

Police said that attackers fled the scene, and the victims were taken to St. Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney. They suffered concussions, fractured bones, lacerations, and bruises.
