Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) --

At dawn on Sunday, 15 January, Jewish extremists assaulted Majdi Muhammad Abu Gazaleh, 21, using wooden sticks, sharp tools and iron sticks. Abu Gazaleh was at work on Jaffa Street in West Jerusalem when the incident occurred.

Abu Gazaleh stated that the assault took place at 4:00 am while he was doing his work in a restaurant in Jaffa Street.

He said, “Some Jewish extremists started pointing at me but I paid them no attention. All of a sudden they surrounded me and they were holding stones, knives, iron hand tools and sticks- there were 7 men wearing kippas, and one woman. Abu Gazaleh added “they circled me and one of them said ‘kill him, kill him.’ Then they started beating me with their sticks, but incredibly, I managed to escape from their hands into the restaurant, and when the boss saw what was happening, he called the police.

"Three member of the group stayed on the other side of the street.” Abu Gazaleh continued, “The police arrived and made a quick interrogation with me and I pointed to the three people who were standing close to the restaurant as the ones who assaulted me. The police immediately took down their identity numbers and searched one of them, then asked them to go away.”

Abu Gazaleh continued, “We are exposed to daily harassment, provocation and derogatory language from the extremist Jews and what allows these practices to continue is the lack of legal procedures taken against them.”

It is noteworthy that a wide range of assaults are taking place on a daily basis against youth who pass through the streets of Western Jerusalem, becoming almost common practice. Local Human Rights centers have documented many cases of assault against youth from Jerusalem. These cases included the martyr Husam Al Rwaidi, others who were injured and kept home for many days, and others who had traumas, broken bones and other injuries.Most of the time these incidents are registered against unknown assailants and the cases are mostly closed due to insufficient evidence.
