Hebrew-Speaking Tourist Assaulted in Berlin
JNS.org – A 21-year-old Israeli tourist’s face was attacked and punched while speaking Hebrew in Berlin’s district of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, according to local authorities, who termed the incident as “bodily injury with antisemitic background.”
The attack occurred early on Monday morning outside of a nightclub, where the suspect, described by the victim as someone who “looked Arabic,” attacked the Israeli, causing facial injuries.
Police have launched an investigation into the incident.
An estimated four antisemitic-related incidents take place a day in Germany since 2001, according to the country’s interior ministry.
