A uniformed haredi soldier who was driving through the Bukharan Quarter of Jerusalem was attacked by a mob of haredi youths tonight.
The haredi mob surrounded the car and tore the soldier’s kippa off his head, Arutz Sheva reported in a news brief.
According to police, who are investigating the attack, the soldier was did not require medical treatment.
“A number of haredi youth blocked the soldier’s car from the front, threatened him and then dragged him out of the vehicle and attacked him. They then tore off his yalmulke and fled the scene when police arrived,” Jerusalem Police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld told the press Monday, the Jerusalem Post reported.
The soldier sustained minor injuries during the assault and was treated at a nearby hospital and then released, Rosenfeld said.
The attack is similar to an attack against two haredi soldiers in Mea Shearim three weeks ago.
No arrests have been made in either case.
