Arab Breaks Chair on Elderly Jew’s Head in Yerushalayim


old-city-of-yerushalayimA large-bodied Arab man attacked an elderly Jew in Yerushalayim’s Old City on Shabbos. The victim’s daughter, Tali Hoffman, told Arutz Sheva that her father was making his way to Shacharis, as he does every Shabbos, from his home in the Muslim Quarter to the Kosel.

When he arrived at Rechov Chagai, just a few dozen meters from the Kosel, the Arab man stepped out of a falafel shop and tried to knock him down by shoving a chair toward his legs. Having failed to knock down the Jew, the Arab then threw the chair at Hoffman’s head. The chair broke from the force of the blow. Hoffman’s father suffered a deep cut in his arm, which he had used to protect his head.
