A 22-year-old Israeli Arab sustained light to moderate wounds when he was attacked early on Saturday at Jerusalem's French Hill neighborhood.
The man, who was taken to Hadassah Mt. Scopus Hospital, said he was accosted by two Jewish youths who punched his back and legs.
Police are investigating.
In December, a series of attacks perpetrated by Jewish assailants targeted bus drivers in East Jerusalem. Dozens drivers resigned due to fear for their lives.
In a separate incident, a taxi driver, a resident of the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of East Jerusalem, was assaulted with pepper spray.
The driver, Mohammed Shalayla, said he stopped on King George Street to pick up a passenger, when a Jewish man in his 40s shouted, "Don't take that cab – the driver is Arab." He said he responded that he wouldn’t drive such an "extremist" passenger, and that the man then pepper-sprayed him in the face through the window.
