TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma’an) — Jewish youths on Sunday attacked a 40-year-old Palestinian cleaner in Tel Aviv, Israeli media reported.
Hassan Ausruf was filling the water tank of his street cleaning vehicle when around 15 youths attacked him, his wife told the Israeli daily Haaretz.
“He asked them why they were attacking him and they told him with utmost chutzpah ‘because you’re Arab,'” Nariman told Haaretz.
“They attacked him with whatever they could get their hands on, bottles and shards of glass and they inflicted serious wounds to his head and in one of his eyes.”
She added: “At some point he managed to escape with his entire face covered in blood and reached a friend where he collapsed.”
Ausruf was treated at Wolfson Medical Center for deep cuts to his face and skull fractures, the report said.
Police are investigating but have not arrested any suspects.
