Israeli stabs, injures Bedouin Palestinian in Ashdod

Jan. 5, 2017 4:26 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 7, 2017 4:54 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- An ultra-Orthodox Jewish Israeli stabbed and injured a Bedouin Palestinian in the Israeli city of Ashdod on Thursday morning, Israeli police reported.

According to Israeli police spokeswoman Luba al-Samri, the Bedouin Palestinian was lightly to moderately injured and taken to a hospital for treatment.

The suspect fled the scene, al-Samri added.

Israeli news outlet Ynet reported that the Bedouin man said he was assaulted after the ultra-Orthodox Israeli heard him speaking in Arabic.

However, al-Samri said that Israeli police believed for the time being that the incident was likely criminal and not "nationalistically" motivated.

Anti-Palestinian attacks in Israel are frequent and often involve the desecration of holy sites in addition to physical assaults.
