Chareidi Man Attacked on Bus: ‘The Corona Came Because of You’

YERUSHALAYIM -

A chareidi man, an employee of the Kol Chai radio station, was attacked on Sunday morning as he traveled on a bus in central Israel.

An unidentified person approached him and told him, “Because of you people, the corona came [to Israel].”

The man proceeded to hit the chareidi man in the stomach, causing the employee’s nose to bleed.

A complaint was filed with the police.

The management of Kol Chai radio said in a statement in response to the incident: “This is an unprecedented result of the anti-Semitic incitement against the chareidi public, which led a hot-tempered young man to use severe violence against a person. We demand this violence be condemned unequivocally.”
