Description
Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) —

Tow settlers assaulted the 48-year old taxi driver Ziad Qawasmi after midnight Tuesday while he was working in west side of Jerusalem.

Ziad narrated to Wadi Hilweh Information Center what happened and said: “while I was working in one of the streets in the west side Jerusalem, two settlers stopped me and they both came in my car. One of them sat next to me and the other behind me.”

He added: “I took them to Bar Elan Street and before getting off, the settler sitting next to me punched me on my face and the one behind me tried to strangle me by putting his hand around my neck.

Ziad pointed out that the settlers were in their twenties and were dressed in civilian clothes and were wearing “kippas”.

He added that the settlers ran away when a group of Jews passed by and said that he called the police and was transferred to Shaare Zedek Hospital for treatment as he suffered a broken nose and wounds in his face that required eight stitches.
