Israeli Students Assaulted by Qatari Youths in Warsaw – Jeremy Sharon
Several Israeli students in Warsaw on a semester abroad were violently assaulted early Saturday by a group of young men from Qatar. Yotam Kashpizky said a group of young Arab men approached them and started asking if they were Israeli. They started shouting “free Palestine” and “free Gaza” and began to assault them.
One of the assailants punched Yotam in the face and he lost consciousness. He was taken to hospital and treated for a broken nose and eye socket. He was highly critical of both passersby and night club security personnel, who did nothing to help the Israelis. (Jerusalem Post)
