A number of extremist Israeli settlers attacked a Palestinian from Silwan town with a knife, and beat him with clubs, while he was passing Bar Elan Street, in Jerusalem, Wadi Hilweh Information Center reported, according to Al Ray.

“[At] around ten o’clock in the evening, [as] I was riding my motorcycle and passing Bar Elan Street, a group of five Israeli settlers attacked me with a knife, and hit me with clubs,” 26-year-old Moahmmed Razem stated.

Razem added that he tried to escape but could not, while the settlers ran away when they saw a police patrol passing in the street. 

He was injured in his thigh, as they attacked him with a knife, in addition to some bruises, and was taken to a nearby hospital.
