An Israeli colonialist settler attacked, Wednesday, a Palestinian man with special needs in Wadi Hilweh Street in Silwan town, in the occupied Palestinian capital, Jerusalem.

The Wadi Hilweh Information Center in Silwan (Silwanic) said a colonist who works as a guard of an illegal outpost, chased Fadi Mheisin before pushing him onto the ground and repeatedly punching him on the head and face, in addition to trying to choke him.

Silwanic added that local Palestinians heard and saw the attack and rushed to help Mheisin before other guards arrived at the scene.

Mheisin, a man with special needs, suffered various bruises to his head and face, especially around one of his eyes.

“He attacked me like a beast,” Mheisin said, “punched and chocked me until my neighbors rushed to my aid and rescued me.”
