Two Jewish victims are recovering from severe injuries after being viciously attacked by an Arab mob.
The area near the Lions’ Gate entrance to Jerusalem’s Old City was the scene of a brutal attack by local Arabs on two Jewish residents. The attack occurred on Monday night when one of the victims left his home in the area to throw out the trash, according to a report by the Honenu legal aid society, which is assisting the victims.
The man was set upon by a group of around 10 Arab attackers who pummeled the victim mercilessly. The Arab attackers also went after a second man, a neighbor who raced to the scene to try to assist the first victim. This man was also severely injured in the melee. While both men were left severely bruised, one of them required treatment at nearby hospital due to a head injury he sustained during the beating.
According to a report by Arutz Sheva, police arrested some of the attackers, who were taken to the Merchav David Station in Jerusalem for questioning.
Relatives of one of the victims said that the attack was s tragic reminder or the murder of Rabbi Nehemia Lavi, who was killed near the Lions’ Gate as he attempted to help victims being stabbed by a terrorist. Rabbi Lavi, a resident of the area, was ultimately stabbed to death by the terrorist.
The terrorist Muhannad Halabi, who murdered two Israelis in the incident and injured two others, was “honored” by the Palestinian Authority (PA), which named the main road between the Palestinian village of Birzeit and the city of Ramallah after him.
