Extremist Jews attacked on Sunday a Palestinian youth on racist grounds in Jaffa Str. in West Jerusalem.

The victim who was identified as Majdi Mahmoud Abu Ghazaleh, 21, was attacked with sticks and iron bars while working in the street. He told JCSER's field worker that the attack took place at around 4:00 a.m. during his work outside a restaurant in Jaffa Street. By then a group of seven extremist Jews approached him armed with knives, sticks, iron bars and stones.

He added, "They surrounded me while saying to each others kill him. They began to beat me but, it was a miracle to escape inside the restaurant where the officials there called the police."

Abu Ghazaleh continued, The police arrived, investigated me, and I identified to them the assailants of whom three were still standing nearby, but the police registered their ID cards numbers and sent them away from the area.

He noted, "On daily basis, we suffer of Jews provocations. They direct insult, abuses and call us with bad words, and they find encouragement in their actions because of the absence of any deterrent actions."

According to JCSER, attacks on Palestinians on racist grounds have become a phenomenon in the past two years. Human right organizations have documented many cases of Jews attacks against Palestinians. Among the Palestinian victim, Husam al-Ruweidi who died of injuries sustained from such attacks.
