He remains in Ichilov Hospital with a fractured zygomatic arch and injuries to his jaw and other areas. The city sanitation worker was cleaning the area when the youths arrived.
“They asked me ‘are you an Arab?’ I told them to calm down. They shouted ‘you’re and Arab! You want a state!’ and began beating me. After they saw me bleeding quite a bit they fled. I work all day to make a simple living. I don’t get it” he told police.
